CEBEX Summer School on Behavioral Sciences 2023 brings you a complex course focused on theory, experimental design, and data evaluation in behavioral economics and public policy. The full-experience course lasts 12 days (with two free days included) and is divided into three independent blocks:


Block A: 'Introduction to R' takes three days (July 24–26, 18 hrs. of lectures) and teaches you the basics of programming in R, free statistical software used by many researchers. You will learn how to work with data and understand basic programming terminology to be able to work on projects in R on your own.

Block B: 'Behavioral Economics and Public Policy' takes three days (July 28–30, 18 hrs. of lectures) and gives you a theoretical overview of behavioral economics and behavioral public policy. We will discuss how human brains work, how evolution shaped our decision-making and what influences it today, and the use of findings from behavioral sciences in public policies.

Block C: 'Designing and Running Experiments' takes four days (August 1–4, 20 hrs. of lectures) and walks you through the steps of experimental research. You will understand everything that should be considered when designing an experiment. We will also show you how to use an online tool to develop and run your experiment.


We designed the program so that you can attend the full-experience course as a whole or only the blocks that best suit your needs. For instance, if you are a bachelor interested in research (or you want to prepare for writing your thesis), you are definitely able to take the full-experience program. On the other hand, if you are a doctorate student already having your research topic, you can only attend Block A and C.

It is possible to attend online or face-to-face.
