Behavioural Economics Seminars

The LSE Behavioural Economics seminar series is a cross-departmental, inter-disciplinary initiative, founded by Adam Oliver, and now coordinated by Matteo M Galizzi.

The seminar series aims to bring together researchers interested in behavioural economics and applied behavioural science across all LSE departments and research centres.

The seminars typically alternate speakers from the LSE and from other institutions, mainly in the London area.

The seminar series in 2014/2015 was ‘kicked-off’ by a LSE Behavioural Science Special Lecture on Friday 17th October 2014: Professor John List, Homer J. Livingston Professor of Economics at University of Chicago, gave a lecture on Field Experiments in Economicshttp://www.behavioural-experimental.london/2014/10/special-lecture-by-john-list/

Similarly, the seminar series in 2013/2014 was ‘kicked-off’ by LSE Behavioural Science Special Lecture on Behavioural Economics and Diet by Professor George Loewenstein, Herbert A Simon Professor of Economics and Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University: http://www.lse.ac.uk/publicEvents/events/2013/11/20131112t1715vSZT.aspx
