The first school on experimental economics in the Far East
Far Eastern Federal University accepted the I Pacific School of Experimental Economics
From 20 to 26 September in Vladivostok, at the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU), the I Pacific School of Experimental Economics was held, organized by the Laboratory for Modeling Socio-Economic Processes of the FEFU in cooperation with the International Laboratory of Experimental and Behavioural Economics. Among others, the teachers of the school were employees of the laboratory A.V.Belyanin, F.I.Chapkovsky, A.D. Suvorov, A.V. Zakharov and G. Walkowitz. This is the first school of this level in Russian.
About 30 students from all over Russia came to FEFU. These were students from leading universities in Russia, young scientists starting their scientific careers, and already established specialists.
School participants had the opportunity to attend lectures on models and methods of experimental economics, behavioral aspects of social interaction, game theory and economic mechanisms, learned about ways to conduct online and offline experiments, their programming, as well as about the experience of conducting interregional and intercountry experimental research. Finally, they had to present and discuss their own idea of the experiment, which, later, can be brought to a full-fledged research.
