11th Young Scholars Workshop in Behavioral Economics and Experimental Research


September 12, 2024

Lang EN Workshop language is English
Responsable de l'activité

Christian Zehnder


Prof. Christian Zehnder, University of Lausanne

Prof. Holger Herz, University of Fribourg




The workshop takes place right after the summer school and in the same location (Seiler's vintage hotel in Kandersteg) and participants are encouraged to subscribe to both events, because the timing foreseen in the program ensures a perfectly smooth transition from the summer school to the workshop. However, it is also possible to only participate in one of the two events.

If you want to participate in both events, please make sure you sign for the summer school + the workshop.



The workshop offers participants the chance to present projects at any stage of progress (project ideas, research designs, completed projects).

If you would like to present at the workshop, please submit a title and abstract to Bénédicte Moreira ([email protected]


Submission deadline: August 5, 2024


Of course it is also possible to participate in the workshop without presenting a paper.


At the end of the workshop, our guest speaker will deliver a keynote address.




Participants will be hosted at Seiler's vintage hotel


Arrangements for the group will be made by the program coordinator.

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).
