Welcome to the Institute for Risk and Insurance. Our institute bundles the insurance-related research and teaching at the Faculty of Economics and Management. Teaching and research at our institute are characterized by a clear international orientation and the integration of numerous professional relations. In our research, we focus on the decision-making of buyers and sellers of insurance products. We strive for high quality research with relevance to the scientific community and practice. Our teaching combines an application-oriented and methodologically advanced education. Due to our affiliation with the House of Insurance (HoI) we maintain close contact with the Institute of Insurance and Financial Mathematics, the chair of Civil Law, Insurance Law and Private International Law and, in particular, with the insurance companies based in Hanover, resulting in a lively exchange of interdisciplinary and practice-oriented insurance research. At the institute, Dr. Damm's group also deals with health care research and is a member of CHERH
