Summer School in Behavioral Economics (SSBE)

The focus of the summer school is not on foundational or “classical” work in behavioral economics, but on familiarizing students with recent developments in the literature. Each faculty member covers one broad research agenda within behavioral economics and discusses open questions and possible future directions.

faq

The SSBE is held every two years. The 4th Summer School in Behavioral Economics is scheduled for 2023.
The co-organizers are Armin Falk (briq and University of Bonn), Botond Kőszegi (CEU Budapest), and Florian Zimmermann (briq and University of Bonn).
The purpose of the summer school is to introduce graduate students in economics to various cutting-edge research topics in behavioral economics. The main focus will not be on the foundations of behavioral economics, but on familiarizing students with recent developments. Hence, some familiarity with the main phenomena and models of behavioral economics — or a willingness to catch up beforehand by studying background readings — is ideal. The schedule will include opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with faculty and fellow students, and for socializing.
The summer school lasts 5 days. Participation for the entire duration of the summer school is mandatory.
The Summer School is hosted and fully financed by briq. Funding is covered conditional on attending the entire Summer School. Economy class airfares and six nights of lodging including breakfast and meals in the program will be covered for invitees according to the briq reimbursement guidelines. Kindly note that tax regulations prohibit briq from fully reimbursing the travel expenses of conference participants who combine their trip with other destinations or extend their stay beyond the 7-day-window surrounding the event.
Graduate students in Economics from all over the world can apply. The summer school is designed for 2nd year students and above.
The admittance to the school is very selective, and the applicants must provide proof of their academic achievements. The application package includes: curriculum vitae, a statement of purpose (maximum two pages), an (unofficial) course/grade transcript, as well as two letters of recommendation from faculty advisors describing the student’s standing in the program, research potential, and interest in behavioral economics.
Currently there is no announcement and therefore no deadline.
