Statistical Methods for Insurance in the Light of Big Data

The rapidly progressing digitalization leads to enormous amounts of data which can be used to enhance the core processes of the insurance industry. An important precondition to derive the right decisions from the data is to increase the knowledge on statistical methods.

Organised by the EAA - European Actuarial Academy GmbH in cooperation with the Istituto Italiano degli Attuari.


Participants should have basic previous knowledge in stochastics and probability theory. No specific statistical knowledge is required.

During this seminar, you will not need a laptop.

Purpose and Nature

The seminar focusses on illustrating the theoretical foundations of traditional and modern statistical methods. The understanding of these foundations is a crucial prerequisite for the practical application of the methods. Practical examples following each theory block create a reference to the insurance industry.


The language of the seminar will be English.
