The German Society for Insurance and Financial Mathematics ("Deutsche Gesellschaft für Versicherungs- und Finanzmathematik e.V.", DGVFM) is the scientific partner organisation of DAV with approximately 5,200 individual and 70 institutional members. The DGVFM promotes a close cooperation between universities (research and teaching) and the insurance business and finance industry (professional practice). Furthermore the DGVFM has close contact with other mathematical organisations in Germany like the German Mathematician Association ("Deutsche Mathematikervereinigung", DMV) or the German Society of Insurance Science ("Deutscher Verein für Versicherungswissenschaft", DVfVW).
To support and motivate especially scientists and young actuaries to investigate open actuarial questions, the DGVFM and DAV have established the annual Gauss Prize in 1998. It awards up to three papers with high practical relevance. The aim is to build bridges between actuarial science and the insurance and finance industry. The prizes are endowed with a prize money of 10.000 Euro and 2.000 Euro each and will be awarded at the Annual Meeting of DAV and DGVFM.
