It is imperative for us to continue our innovative scientific research that ultimately benefits behavioural outcomes. We have the opportunity to make a positive impact, as social scientists and citizens, striving to shape the world.
Keeping in view the COVID-19 outbreak, the Behavioural Lab will be starting to run in a whole new way; impactful, safe, practical and positive for all those involved.
Instead of running studies physically inside the LSE facilities, we will support other means of data collection and help behavioural researchers continue their research.
We support online surveys and experiments via various virtual platform suitable for both quantitative and qualitative research. These might be especially appealing and appreciated at a time when we are asked to distance. They are also ways for our participant pool to keep feeling connected to the LSE community.
Our committed Behavioural Lab Team is lucky to be larger than ever: Gintare Venckute, Nino Nizharadze, Rachel Harris, Rebecca Bianchi, Sean Rooney and Barbara Fasolo (Head of Lab).
We're always available via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and where necessary, you can arrange a phone call or a virtual meeting, just email us to arrange this.
We also want to hear from you if you have ideas to share with us.
As we are creating new ways to advance behavioural research for years to come beyond the current emergency, and in line with LSE2030, please feel free to reach out with any suggestions or good examples.
And, if you're interested in going a bit further and shaping the future of the Lab please consider joining our new LSE- wide Behavioural Lab Steering Committee now. To express interest, please write to the current Head of Lab, Barbara, at email@example.com. We have to stay home, but can keep supporting each other.
P.s.: Please check the LSE FAQs for the latest School and government action and advice, as well as here for any research ethics advice. Research students should refer to the PhD Academy advice here.
