briq Summer School in Behavioral Economics

sponsored by the Institute on Behavior and Inequality


Bonn, Germany
June 12– 16, 2023


Application deadline: March 15, 2023

Notification deadline: April 15, 2023



The Institute on Behavior and Inequality (briq) announces the fourth Summer School in Behavioral Economics, to be held in Bonn, Germany, during the full week of June 12 – 16, 2023.

The purpose of the school is to introduce graduate students in economics to various cutting-edge research topics in behavioral economics. The organizers are Botond Kőszegi and Florian Zimmermann, who will lecture along with Nava Ashraf, Lise Vesterlund, Nicola Gennaioli and George Loewenstein. Each faculty member will cover and discuss open questions in one broad recent research agenda in behavioral economics. The schedule will also include plenty of opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with faculty and fellow students, and for socializing.

The focus of the summer school will not be on the foundations of behavioral economics, but on familiarizing students with recent developments. Hence, some familiarity with the main phenomena and models of behavioral economics — or a willingness to catch up beforehand by studying background readings — is expected.    

About 25 participants will be invited and there is no program fee for admitted students. To apply, please upload your curriculum vitae, a statement of purpose (maximum two pages), an (unofficial) course/grade transcript, as well as two letters of recommendation from faculty advisors describing your standing in the program, research potential, and interest in behavioral economics. All application materials must be received by March 15. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by April 15.

The Summer School will be hosted and fully financed by briq. Funding is covered conditional on attending the whole Summer School. Economy class airfares and six nights of lodging including breakfast and meals in the program will be covered for invitees according to the briq reimbursement guidelines.

Kindly note that tax regulations prohibit briq from fully reimbursing the travel expenses of conference participants who combine their trip with other destinations or extend their stay beyond the 7-day-window surrounding the event.

We have moved back to in-person events. Given the still ongoing pandemic, this might turn out to become infeasible. In that case the format would have to be adjusted.
