Wednesday 6th March 2024, 11:00-19:00 | Nexus – University of Leeds 

A detailed discussion of four of the biggest challenges facing the insurance sector and how to align cutting edge climate science and practical applications in the insurance sector.

The UK CGFI Leeds Innovation Hub, in collaboration with the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS), hosted this event on the biggest climate related challenges facing the insurance sector. We’ll share a summary in the coming weeks.

Working with the Lighthill Risk Network and Oasis LMF, we identified four of the biggest challenges facing the sector in the coming years:

To meet these head on, it is crucial that cutting edge climate science and practical applications in insurance are aligned. This event facilitated detailed discussions between academia and industry, with the aim of setting out a research agenda for the most needed and best quality science.

Our aim is for this meeting to be the start of a process and we will revisit and monitor progress in the science and its applications in insurance in the coming years.
