8th Workshop in Behavioral Economics and Experimental Research


September 13, 2021

Responsable de l'activité

Christian Zehnder


Prof. Holger Herz, UNIFR

Prof. Christian Zehnder, UNIL


Prof. Sandro Ambühl, University of Zurich


The goal of the workshop is to bring together young researchers in the area of behavioral economics and, more broadly, behavioral research using experimental methods to present their research and exchange ideas. The workshop also features a keynote address of a renowned researcher in the field.


The workshop offers participants the chance to present their ongoing research. Young scholars can submit two types of presentation.

- Research presentation: in these sessions, participants can present current research projects.

- Project presentation: in these sessions, participants can present project ideas and get feedback from the audience.

It is also possible to participate in the workshop without presenting.

At the end of the workshop Sandro Ambühl from the University of Zurich will deliver a keynote address. He is a rising young researcher in behavioral and experimental economics and has done, among other things, fascinating experiments on financial decision making and paternalism.

The worshop will be followed by a farewell reception.



University of Fribourg


The workshop will take place at the University of Fribourg but if circumstances require us to do so, the workshop will be moved online and take place on Zoom.


For students of the CUSO universities (Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel, and Fribourg), IHEID and the University of Bern, the expenses for accommodation and meals are covered by the CUSO. Travel expenses will be reimbursed based on a second-class half-fare return Swiss rail ticket between the university to which the student is attached and the location of the activity (also valid for travel in a private car).
