5th Annual PhD Workshop
Experimental Development Economics: Lab in the Field
16 May 2018, 8:30am - 7:00pm
The workshop is for current and prospective PhD students who are using or planning to use lab-in-the field experiments in developing countries. This year’s workshop focuses on group and household decision making. Presentations by expert academics discuss how lab-in-the field experiments can improve our understanding of household and group decision making. There will also be an opportunity for selected students to present and receive feedback on their work, focusing on group and household decision making and other topics. There is no registration fee for the workshop.
You can register for the workshop by sending an e-mail to email@example.com mentioning “Registration for lab-in-the field workshop” and containing your name, university, year of study and research topic. Please indicate whether you would like to present your work, in which case you also need to include an extended abstract of your research containing a description of the research question and lab-in-field experiment you intend to use. Early registration is strongly recommended.
The workshop is a joint initiative of the Behavioural and Experimental Development Economics Research Group (BEDERG), the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Sciences (CBESS), both at the University of East Anglia (UEA), and The Choice Lab at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). On the days following the workshop, interested students can also attend the 2018 CCC (CBESS-CEDEX-CREED) meeting, where PhD students from these three institutions will present their research, and which will take place on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 May 2018, after registration (see http://www.uea.ac.uk/cbess/events/ccc-cbess-cedex-creed– and a separate application can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org).
