Popularization of the insurance knowledge and education is one of the most important public functions of PIU. An important element of this role is the close and ongoing co-operation with renowned academic institutions. This cooperation takes place on several levels, including: substance industry conference preparation, “Insurance News” edition and organization of competitions for university exit papers.
One of the targeted groups particularly interested in insurance issues are students of economics. They are the natural recipients of information and knowledge about insurance. Many of them in the future may be interested in working in the insurance market, and today they are looking for a place where they could take part in internship.
That is why PIU together with major universities in Poland has taken steps towards insurance knowledge popularization.
