New Website for Behavioural Economics Events:

A new website - - provides a free one-stop-shop for events in behavioural economics and applied behavioural science.

The website aims to offer a comprehensive list of BE events across the world, with visitors to the site able to  filter events by region. Currently many of the events are based in the UK, but it is hoped this will change as the site's following grows, and software updates over the next week mean that anyone can add events to the site (subject to moderation).

The site also acts as a Calendar application, meaning anyone with Outlook, Google Calendar or other calendar systems can add the list of events to their personal calendar at the bottom of the page. Just click +Subscribe or +Add to Google.

The website was created by Joe Gladstone, a PhD researcher at the University of Cambridge studying financial decision making. It is updated jointly with Jon Jachimowicz, another graduate research student at the university. Following its creation, the website has kindly been sponsored by BE Works, a behavioural consultancy based in Toronto run by many leading academics, including Dan Ariely and Nina Mazar.

Until updates allow visitors to add events, please email Joe Gladstone on with any event you would like to add to the list.
