CEBEX Summer School on Behavioral Sciences 2023

Jul 24, 2023 – Aug 4, 2023



For six years CEBEX Summer School on Behavioral Sciences has offered intensive ECTS summer courses for beginners and advanced learners. Since 2021, we were joined in its organization by the University of New York in Prague. Our venue, located just around the corner from the Prague city center, provides a unique opportunity to explore the beauties of the Czech Republic's capital from various perspectives. In addition, we pride ourselves on having a laid-back international faculty that often joins the out-of-school networking activities we organize for our students. Until now, 189 students from 50 countries and 63 universities worldwide completed our courses and enjoyed long summer evenings with a drink in hand and a smile on their faces. So are you ready to join the club?

CSS23 brings you a complex course focused on theory, experimental design, and data evaluation in behavioral economics and public policy. The full-experience course lasts 12 days (with two free days included) and is divided into three independent blocks:

Block A takes three days (July 24–26, 18 hrs. of lectures) and teaches you the basics of programming in R, free statistical software used by many researchers. You will learn how to work with data and understand basic programming terminology to be able to work on projects in R on your own.

Block B takes three days (July 28–30, 18 hrs. of lecturesand gives you a theoretical overview of behavioral economics and behavioral public policy. We will discuss how human brains work, how evolution shaped our decision-making and what influences it today, and the use of findings from behavioral sciences in public policies.

Block C takes four days (August 1–4, 20 hrs. of lecturesand walks you through the steps of experimental research. You will understand everything that should be considered when designing an experiment. We will also show you how to use an online tool to develop and run your experiment.

We designed the program so that you can attend the full-experience course as a whole or only the blocks that best suit your needsFor instance, if you are a bachelor interested in research (or you want to prepare for writing your thesis), you are definitely able to take the full-experience program. On the other hand, if you are a doctorate student already having your research topic, you can only attend blocks A and C. Should you need more information on what blocks of the program to choose, contact us using the form below.

We also run online – if you cannot travel to Prague, we offer you the opportunity to attend the program online. A 20% discount applies to all online courses. This form of participation does not include networking.
