Newcastle Experimental Economics Workshop

We are happy to announce the inaugural Newcastle Experimental Economics Workshop. The workshop will be held on 10 and 11 November 2022 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. It will consist of two keynote lectures and submitted short presentations.

We are planning for a small-scale in-person workshop. Thanks to generous support from the Business School, there will be no registration fee for participants selected to present (but unfortunately we are unable to cover accommodation or travel expenses).

We are pleased to announce two excellent keynote speakers:
Matteo Galizzi (London School of Economics)
Friederike Mengel (University of Essex)

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle!
