The Laboratory for Experimental Economics at Bonn University (BonnEconLab) was founded in 1984 by Nobel Laureate Reinhard Selten. The Lab is the oldest such institution in Europe looking back at a remarkable and successful history.
BonnEconLab is a central unit of the Department of Economics at the Faculty of Law and Economics of Bonn University. The Lab is more than a facility to run human behavior experiments as it serves a central role in the research and teaching activities of the Economics Department.
- advises researchers of the Economics Department on planning, designing and operating their experiments.
- plays an active role in the Bachelor/Master curriculum and the doctoral education (Bonn Graduate School of Economics – BGSE).
- supports successful experimental research documented by top journal publications and considerable research funding.
- is home and host of numerous renown experimental economists.
- is starting point for the academic career of many experimentalists, renown at home and abroad.
BonnEconLab is at the center of innovative experimental research. The Lab is a home to scientists mainly devoted to behavioral game theory but also to researchers interested in theories of bounded rationality.
At this point we would like to thank the German Science Foundation (DFG), the European Union and the University of Bonn for their continuous support. Without this sponsorship many important projects would not have been realized.
