Welcome to the DEEPEN project!

DEEPEN is a NORFACE-funded research project (2020-2023), that explores the democratic governance of capital-funded occupational pension schemes in Europe. We investigate how governments, regulators and labour market actors govern funded pensions and whether participants are satisfied with pension fund performance. The project focuses on six European countries: Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Ireland and Spain.
