BEHnet will have its annual Summer School at the Erasmus University Rotterdam this year from 1-3 July 2019.

The BEHnet Summer School aims to cover the state-of-the-art applications of behavioral and experimental economics to health. PhD students will learn how to apply methods such as field, lab, and online experiments to health economic issues to discover how individuals actually behave, and how to use economics and behavioral economics insights in order to rigorously test and evaluate how to change health-related behaviors. Topics comprise, for example, incentives in health care markets and in health behaviors, and risk, time, and social preferences in health.

Aims

The course is relevant for PhD candidates and advanced Master students who draw on experimental methods, theoretical modeling, and quantitative methods in their research. First, students will familiarize with the state-of-the-art applications of behavioral and experimental economics methods and insights to health. Second, based on the lectures and the papers from the reading list, students in groups will formulate their own research ideas, develop experimental designs, and give presentations on their research designs.
