1. Cologne Workshop for Experimental Economic Research
Fellows Prof. Dr. Axel Ockenfels
Description The two-day workshop will take place due to the opening of the Cologne Laboratory for Economic Research and act as an internationally visible signal of the development of a new experimental empirical research in Cologne. In particular, the workshop will deal with the planned key themes of the soon-to-be opened laboratory. International scientists and experts are to be invited. By participating in the workshop, academics and students of the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences at the University at Cologne will be able to gain an insight into the methods and themes of experimental economic research, as well as to inspire them to come up with new research ideas. Presentations and discussion regarding four key themes are planned, which can be divided into theory (a,b) and applied (c,d) areas:
  1. Bounded rationality
  2. Social preferences
  3. Design of institutions and organizations
  4. Design of market and negotiation rules
Funding The workshop is funded by means from the Centre for Empirical Economic and Social Research..
