#CSS23

Since 2017, CEBEX Summer School on Behavioral Sciences has offered intensive ECTS summer courses for beginners and advanced learners. 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 designing, running, and evaluating experiments. 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) and teaches you the basics of programming in R, free statistical software used by many researchers. The block ends with a workshop in which you can work on collected data under the supervision of your lecturer. In total, this block has 18 hours of classes.


Block B takes two days (July 28–29) and gives you a basic theoretical overview of a selected field (Behavioral Public PolicyBehavioral and Experimental Economics, or Evolutionary Behavioral Economics) and allows you to develop a research topic that you will use later in the course. In total, this block has 12 hours of classes.


Block C takes five days (July 31 – August 4) and walks you through the basic methodology of experimental research, teaches you how to use an online tool to develop and run your experiment, and shows you the basic overview of statistical methods you can use to evaluate and present the collected data. In total, this block has 25 hours of classes.



We designed the program so that you can attend the full-experience course as a whole or only the blocks that best suit your needs. For 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 Block A and C. Should you need more information on what blocks of the program to choose, contact us using the form below.
