Welcome to the Vienna Center for Experimental Economics

Established in January 2011, the Vienna Center for Experimental Economics (VCEE) is an institution of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics at the University of Vienna.

Our purpose is to provide the infrastructure for conducting experimental research at the University of Vienna as well as a forum to discuss and exchange ideas. To this end we organise a seminar series focused on experimental economics and we maintain a state-of-the-art laboratory on the campus of the University.

The research of our members regularly appears in top economic journals. We also have frequent visitors from the best institutions.
