We prioritise space and resources within the department for research, and are dedicated to maintaining our reputation as a leading research-orientated institution.
The Department of Economics runs several research centres that focus on addressing particular economic concerns:
- Experimental Economics Laboratory (ExpReSS)
- Centre for Robust Inference in a Digital Economy (RIDE)
Core Research Areas
The ExpPreSS Lab is a facility for conducting economic and financial experiments. We can also help with the design of business or research experiments.
The economic experiments carried out here tackle real world economic problems in a laboratory setting, with the predictions of theoretical models (both behavioral and standard) tested in the laboratory, or in a field setting, with human subjects.
The lab consists of 32 PCs and one server, usually running Z-Tree. Our subject pool contains more than 2000 individuals, and we are always on the look out for students to participate in experiments.
Prices start from £320 including VAT for a day’s hire. We can also offer hourly hire from £20 + VAT, plus an additional £1 per subject per hour.
Please email for more details and to book the lab.
