The Bridges/CAGE Summer School on Behavioural Economics will take place in Venice from the 12th-13th September 2019. The event consists of half-day workshops on the foundations and frontiers in current research in behavioural economics and is aimed at an interdisciplinary audience of PhD students. Please apply here. The summer school is supported by the Bridges Leverhulme programme and the ESRC Centre for Competitive Advantage in the Global Economy (CAGE).
Behavioural economics has produced influential and sometimes surprising insights into human decision-making ranging from financial decision-making to well-being. The aim of this summer school is to provide participants with an interdisciplinary forum for discussing these contributions. The workshops are lead by researchers who apply the tools of behavioural economics to unique contexts.
The Leverhulme Bridges Programme is aimed at encouraging applications of mathematical techniques to relevant questions in social sciences. Bridges members have diverse background ranging from the study of financial mathematical models to profiling the kinds of people who believe in conspiracy theories. Consequently, the summer school will be a cross-disciplinary event open to researchers from all fields who are interested in behavioural economics.
