General information

We welcome contributions on all topics within health economics applying experimental methods, be it laboratory or field experiments. The workshop will consist of keynote lectures delivered by Sunita Sah (Cornell University) and Marcos Vera-Hernandez (University College London) and four sessions with invited speakers, including a CEAR (Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk) special session. In addition, we will organize a poster session with 3 min. ‘blitz presentations’ in the plenum, followed by an additional hour for a more informal exchange with the presenters. The workshop will be concluded with a policy round table, where we will discuss the results of the workshop together with representatives from national and local politics as well as healthcare and insurance experts.

Besides the scientific part of the workshop, we will offer a social program for participants. This includes dinner in the newly built ‘Haus der Musik’ on February 6th, as well as a short hike on the mountain on February 8th.

Applications are welcome until October 15, 2019.
