Lab Meeting

Nick Chater convenes a weekly meeting during term time to discuss current research among the participants and ideals for future directions.

WBIT Summit

The summit is focused on behavioural science research. Each year we invite speakers from diverse backgrounds in academia, governmental institutions and industrial companies to discuss their work.

The aim of the summit is to bridge the gap between academics and professionals, the public and private sectors.

This event has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

WBS Summer School

Each year, we hold a four-day summer school for undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in behavioural science. Each year, we invite key speakers to discuss their research and run workshops with our attendees based around a certain theme.

Previous themes have been:

  • Climate change and behaviour
  • The economics of wellbeing
  • Social choice and ethics
  • Medical and ethical decision making

WBS Summer School 2020 was cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic
