Applications now open for PhD Workshop – Experimental Development Economics: Lab in the Field.

University of East AngliaApplications are now open for the University of East Anglia’s 4th annual PhD Workshop – Experimental Development Economics: Lab in the Field.  The workshop will take place on Sunday 3 April 2016 from 8.30am to 7pm at the UEA Campus, Norwich Research Park, Norwich, NR4 7TJ.

The workshop is for current and prospective PhD students who are using or planning to use lab-in-the field experiments in developing countries. This year’s workshop focuses on group and household decision making. Presentations by expert academics discuss how lab-in-the field experiments can improve our understanding of household and group decision making. There will also be an opportunity for selected students to present and receive feedback on their work, focusing on group and household decision making and other topics. There is no registration fee for the workshop.

You can register by sending an e-mail to dev.general@uea.ac.uk mentioning “Registration for lab-in-the field workshop” and containing your name, university, year of study and research topic.  Please indicate whether you would like to present your work. In that case you also need to include an extended abstract of your research containing a description of the research question and lab-in-field experiment you intend to use.  More information, including a programme, is available on the CBESS website.

We are delighted that NIBS Co-Investigator, Dr Abigail Barr from the University of Nottingham, will be speaking about “Cooperation in Polygynous Households“. 

Students may also be interested in the NIBS 2016 conference on Assessing well-being when preferences are incoherent which takes place 4 to 6 April at the University of East Anglia.  More details about the programme and registration are available on the conference website
