The Behavioral and Experimental Economics group has an influential position in this field in the Netherlands and Europe. CREED, the Amsterdam-based group, focuses particularly on three main projects: economics of political decision making; bounded rationality and institutions and experimental economics. The research of the Rotterdam-based group focuses on two broad themes: decision under risk and uncertainty and intertemporal choice.
The Behavioral and Experimental Economics group was founded in 1991 at the University of Amsterdam. It is one of the first centers for experimental and behavioral economics in Europe. The group has an influential position in this field in the Netherlands and Europe. At Erasmus University Rotterdam, the group started with the arrival of Peter Wakker and Han Bleichrodt in 2005, and has since expanded to include many other researchers. This part of the group focuses on decision under risk and uncertainty, and intertemporal choice.
