Experimental Development Economics - Lab in the Field

The workshop is for current and prospective PhD students who are using or planning to use lab-in-the field experiments in developing countries and/or working on behavioral economics in general. There will be two keynote presentations and eight slots for selected students to present and receive feedback on their work.

Please indicate whether you would like to present your work, in which case you also need to include an extended abstract of your research containing a description of the research question and the lab-in-field experiment that you have carried out or plan to carry out. Early registration is strongly recommended. The workshop is free but participants have to pay for their own hotel and travel expenses.

The workshop will take place at NHH Norwegian School of Economics. The workshop is immediately followed by the Nordic Conference in Development Economics and you may be interested in submitting to and attending both events.
