Exclusive partner workshop on behavioral and experimental economics

The objective of the workshop, which was exclusive to the CIRANO's partners on behavioural and experimental economics, was to introduce this methodology, its scope and how it allows for a better understanding of the determinants of certain decisions in the context of risk and uncertainty.

Sabine Kröger, professor at Laval University and co-director of the Claude Montmarquette experimental economics laboratory with Huan Xie, professor at Concordia University, presented experimental and behavioral economics and its implementation in the year 2000 at CIRANO by Professor Claude Montmarquette.

Several CIRANO researchers, including Pierre-Carl Michaud, professor at HEC Montréal, Maurice Doyon, professor at Université Laval, Brahim Bourdarbat, professor at Université de Montréal and Pierre-Olivier Pineau, professor at HEC Montréal, presented their most recent work in experimental and behavioural economics.

The day was followed by a ceremony in honor of Claude Montmarquette, co-founder and Fellow of CIRANO and pioneer of experimental economics in Canada. The first Claude Montmarquette Fellowship was awarded during the ceremony.
