Seminars and Workshops

We organize research seminars to various topics. Most of them are jointly organized with the Graduate School Business and Economics (GSBE) and with other research programmes at the School of Business and Economics.

GSBE-ETBC seminar series

The Graduate School of Business and Economics (GSBE) seminar covers the topics Theory, Behavior, Experiments and Computation. From September to December and February to June it takes place once per week (usually Thursday at 16:00). Renowned speakers are invited from all over the world. 


Interdisciplinary Brownbag Seminar of Behavioral Sciences – Theory and Empiric

The goal of the seminar is to establish an interdisciplinary seminar community of scholars interested in human behaviour and strategic interaction at SBE and beyond. In particular, we welcome presentations on theoretical, empirical and experimental research around this broad topic.
We are looking forward to intensifying the links in our community across disciplines, departments, and research groups. 


MLSE seminar series

MLSE is a (mostly) bi-weekly event jointly organized by the Department of Microeconomics and Public Economics and the Department of Quantitative Economics. It aims to give researchers the opportunity to present their ongoing work and to facilitate cooperation among them. 


8th BEET Workshop on June 3 and June 4, 2024

The 8th Bargaining: Experiments, Empirics, and Theory Workshop will be hosted at Maastricht University on June 3 and 4, 2024. 

The aim of BEET is to bring together researchers working on bargaining and generate fruitful cross-fertilization with a multi-methodological emphasis. The workshop is organized annually, the location alternating between Europe and the US.


M-BEES & M-BEPS 2024 

The Maastricht Behavioral and Experimental Economics Symposium and the Maastricht Behavioral Economic Policy Symposium are organized each year in June by the Department of Microeconomics and Public Economics.
The broad topic of M-BEES is Theory and Experiments. M-BEES centers around the question if and how economic experiments can inform economic theory and vice versa.

M-BEPS brings together behavioral and experimental researchers from different disciplines as well as policy makers and practitioners interested in how behavioral economics can inform policies in government and business. The goal of M-BEPS is to encourage the discussion of relevant policy topics and the exchange among European policy makers, international researchers, and practitioners.
