The challenge

Insurance Challenge

How can insurers position themselves as a life partner instead of a risk cover? Specifically, we want to focus on stress and burn outs. With all the economic and social problems, the chance of this increases greatly.

The why

Why is this challenge important?

It is currently the case with many insurers that they position themselves as a risk cover. They are seen more as an agency that can cover large unforeseen expenses and mitigate risk, but they do much more. For example, there are apps that can analyze moles and, based on AI, determine whether someone should have it checked after all. We can build on this.

The solution

What outcome are we looking for?

For the students, the questions would be the following:

  1. How can we employ, AI, Big Data and IT systems (existing or new) to alert our clients (accurately) to the approaching risk of a burn out or high stress levels?

  2. How can insurers position themselves as life partners instead of risk mitigators in relation to this? Also think how the current business model needs to be changed.


What do we expect from the participants?

Open minded and out of the box thinking.


We are looking for:
Students in IT, Data science, Artificial Intelligence

About us

Verbond van Verzekeraars

The Dutch Association of Insurers is the advocacy group of damage and life insurers in the Netherlands. The Association represents the interests of its members and links them to the interests of society. More than 95 percent of all Dutch insurers are members of the Association. We have set the course to develop ourselves into an Open platform: A platform that connects insurers, stakeholders and organizations from both inside and outside of the sector. Together we want to create added value for customers, learn from each other and find answers to challenging issues that affect us all. Think of the impact of technological developments and data. Society is data driven and this also applies to the insurance sector. Also, industry expansion, changing customer behavior and social themes such as sustainability are very relevant. We take on the challenge of making everyone aware of the importance of a well-functioning insurance market: indispensable within the insurance sector and for society as a whole.
