The Behavioural and Economic Science Cluster (UQ BESC) is hosting a cross-faculty workshop on social science experiments on Monday 28 October 2019.

The main goal of the workshop is to bring together UQ researchers who share a common interest in designing and running experiments about human behaviour. It will also be an opportunity for experimentalists to present their work and receive feedback from different disciplines in preparation for upcoming grant rounds.

We invite experimentalists from all fields to join us for this workshop.
