Newcastle Experimental Economics Workshop

We are happy to announce the 2023 Newcastle Experimental Economics Workshop. The workshop will be held on 9th and 10th November 2023 at Newcastle University, UK. The focus of the workshop will be on experimental research in economics, the psychology of decision making, and applications to, for example, environment and health.

We are planning for a small-scale, in-person workshop. Thanks to generous support from the Royal Economic Society and Newcastle University Business School, there will be no registration fee for participants selected to present. Additionally, we will be able to grant up to three travel awards to PhD students who are selected to present their papers (unfortunately we are unable to cover travel costs of other participants). More details can be found below.

We are pleased to announce two excellent keynote speakers:
Peter Martinsson (Technical University of Denmark & University of Gothenburg)
Marie Claire Villeval (CNRS, Lyon)

If you have any questions regarding the workshop, please email us at:

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle!

Peter Martinsson is a full professor in economics at the Department of Technology, Management and Economics, Technical University of Denmark, and at the Department of Economics, University of Gothenburg. His current research focuses on behavioural economics. He often uses experimental methods to address topics such as social preferences, risk preferences, trust, inequality and justice, both in developing and developed countries.

She is the founding President of the French Association of Experimental Economics (ASFEE) and a former President of the French Economic Association (AFSE) and the Economic Science Association (ESA). Her main research interests are behavioural and experimental economics applied to the analysis of the efficiency of incentives, the dynamics of social norms, ethics and dishonesty, biases in the transmission of information, and the demand and supply of ignorance.
