Vienna Behavioral Economics Network

The aim of the Vienna Behavioral Economics Network VBEN is to disseminate knowledge gathered at research institutions in Vienna to anyone interested in behavioral economics. The VBEN provides a platform to meet and network, and it promotes the dialogue between researchers in behavioral economics and stakeholders in the economy, the public administration, nonprofit organizations and interest groups, and society at large. For now, the main activity of VBEN is to organize talks and discussion events at various locations in Vienna.
