Laboratory Experiments conducted by BGSE Students

BGSE students focusing on experimental economics have the great opportunity of using the facilities of the Bonn Econ Lab. The lab was founded in 1984 by Nobel Laureate Reinhard Selten and is the oldest institution of its kind in Europe. It is at the center of innovative research in experimental economics, as is documented by publications in top international journals and by considerable research funding. In past semesters, the BGSE has financially supported the following experiments of its students:
