October 26th Research Group Launch

The third in our series of workshops on Economics, Psychology and Policy takes place from 9am to 5pm on October 26th in the Stirling Cottrell Building. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on a range of exciting topics spanning disciplines including economics, psychology, and mathematics. Details of the previous session are here.

Our new Economics and Psychology Research Group will be launched on the day. Our preliminary webpage is here and twitter feed is here. We very much welcome suggestions for developing the group, ideas for collaboration and offers for sponsorship of workshops and events. Please contact lennie(dot)jing(at)stir(dot)ac(dot)uk to register.

This event looks like it will be a very engaging day Liam.

I wanted to travel over for the launch of the new group, but unfortunately I am involved in organising a two-day conference to be held at DIT on the 25th and 26th October. It's the wrap-up for our project on the value of A&H research, and our partners from Norway and Netherlands will be travelling to Dublin for it. Would definitely have been over to Stirling for the launch otherwise.
