Plenary Sessions


Keynote Lecture

Our keynote speaker is Bettina Rockenbach from the University of Cologne.

The keynote lecture is sponsored by Springer, the publisher of ESA’s journals Experimental Economics and JESA.

BERA plenary lecture

BERA is a network of seven research institutions in Berlin dedicated to promoting the careers of postdoctoral researchers in economics and adjacent fields. BERA is the sponsor of this plenary lecture. In line with BERA’s mission, the aim of the BERA plenary lecture is to promote researchers who are younger (though in this case beyond post-doctoral level) and less well-known than the typical keynote speaker but excellent researchers that we believe deserve more attention.

The two speakers in the BERA plenary lecture are Julie Chytilová from Charles University Prague and Songfa Zhong from the National University of Singapore.

Policy Panel

“What do experiments have to deliver in order to be relevant for policy advice?”

The panel discussion is co-sponsed by the CRC TRR 190 “Rationality and Competiton”, a research center of applied and behavioral economists that aims to explore the policy relevance of behavioral economics. The panel discussion deals with the question whether and which type of economic experiments are useful for policy advice. It brings together researchers in behavioral and experimental economics who work on policy relevant questions, researchers who are involved in policy advice as well as policy makers.
