Experimental Economic Research
Researcher Prof. Dr. Axel Ockenfels, Prof. Dr. Dirk Sliwka
Project Description The experimental laboratory is the most important tool for the experimental economist. The Cologne laboratory will deal with the generation of primary data, which in turn is intended to serve as the third foundation of the Centre for Empirical Economic and Social Research along with field and panel research, and secondary data analysis. The experimental methods are the best way of connecting the varying disciplines and fields of research that are available at the faculty. The experimental laboratory will principally be open to scientists of the faculty and in particular to members of the centre. Work currently planned includes research on the optimal design of institutions and markets (Ockenfels), research on deregulatory measures and market forms in the energy industry (Ockenfels), research on theories regarding limited rational behaviour (Ockenfels) and on incentives within organisations (Sliwka).
Funding The Centre for Empirical Economic and Social Research supports the programming of experiments.
