Our Behavioural Economics team helps policy makers within government and regulators to understand consumer and firm behaviour using the latest insights from behavioural science. We design and implement innovative, cutting-edge behavioural experiments and randomised controlled trials (RCTs) to deliver robust and academically rigorous testing of policy options. We work across multiple policy areas, such as regulated industries (finance, water, gas, electricity and telecommunications), education, environmental policy, and competition assessment. Our team includes multiple PhDs and professionals each with more than 10 years of experience of delivering behavioural and experimental economics studies for government and regulators. We will find tools for you to tackle the most challenging issues surrounding decision making and human behaviour.
Our behavioural economics team works closely with our Public Policy team, click here to see more.
