Niko V.

Master's DegreeUniversity of Eastern Finland



I am working in the field of social policy with a close link to European politics. My main focus is pension systems in EU countries. Currently, I am working on ongoing EU social policy processes, for example on the open method of coordination, the European Semester and digitalization. In addition, I research pension systems, I cooperate with representatives from other statutory pension insurances in Europe at the European Social Insurance Platform (ESIP). There, I serve as the chair of the Pension Committee which gathers expertise on European pension policy and its impact, coordinates joint positions, and exchanges good practice from the respective pension systems. In addition, I participate and give talks on international conferences and working groups.
