Online Summer School RExSchool21 on Experimental and Behavioural Economics of Social Norms and Social Preferences
The International Laboratory for Experimental and Behavioural Economics is pleased to announce the summer school RExSchool21 taking place from July 19 to 26, 2021.
We invite international Ph.D. students as well as advanced M.Sc. level students with some experience in experimental and behavioral economics and data analysis, who want to further develop their skills in these fields.
The goal of the school is spreading knowledge and transferring skills necessary to conduct cutting-edge experimental studies on social norms and social preferences, with special emphasis on cross-regional, long-distance and online experiments. An additional goal is promoting experimental research in Russia and in other emerging experimentalist countries.
Summer school participants will take lectures by experienced scholars on methods in experimental economics and behavioural game theory. Courses will include structural estimation of economic models using experimental data, how to conduct online experiments as well as interregional and cross-country experiments and programming respective experimental designs.
Participants will also work on an empirical experimental project in the field of their research area together with other participants under the guidance of the summer school’s resource persons. Team projects will be evaluated and the best team will be awarded a grant of up to 500$ to support the development of their experimental project.
The summer school is linked to the RExCon21 Conference on “Social preferences and social norms" hosted by the Higher School of Economics during July 22 and 23, 2021. Part of the courseprogram of RExSchool21 are the keynote lectures by
Lucas Balafoutas, University of Innsbruck, Austria
Erin Krupka, University of Michigan, USA
Matthias Sutter, Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, Germany
Participants will also be able to attend the contributed paper talks of the conference. In the evenings, social events are planned, such as a virtual tour of Moscow, a distributed cheese-wine party and interactive sessions.
Summer school tuition is free of charge.
The school will take place online based on Central European (Summer) Time.
Working language is English.
