CSS24 brings you a complex program focused on theory, experimental design, and data evaluation in behavioral economics and public policy. The full-experience program lasts 11 days (with two free days included) and is divided into three independent courses:

The course Data Analysis in R (DAR) takes three days (July 23–25, 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.

The course Behavioral Economics and Public Policy (BEPP) takes three days (July 27–29, 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.

The course Designing and Running Experiments (DRE) takes four days (July 31 – August 2, 18 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 summer school so that you can attend the full-experience program as a whole or only the courses 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 the first and third course.
