U.S.E. researchers often publish about behavioural economics, social networking, experimental economics, for instance on pension policy, institutions, industrial organisation and consumers’ choices.
An example is the project Sustainable decision-making: non-monetary incentives for pro-social behaviour in the energy sector, by order of the Ministry of Economic Affairs. This has resulted in a follow-up using the project insights to conduct a series of experiments on efficient use of energy in companies.
