Innsbruck Spring School & Summit 2023

The 2023 edition of the Innsbruck Spring School on Credence Goods, Incentives and Behavior and the Innsbruck Spring Summit - (Un)Ethical Behavior in Markets was held from May 8-12.

The school will focus on theoretical, experimental and behavioral approaches towards analyzing the economic implications of credence goods and will be taught by Rudolf Kerschbamer (University of Innsbruck) and Loukas Balafoutas (University of Exeter / University of Innsbruck). In addition, special sessions on selected topics in Behavioral Economics/Finance will be held by Cass Sunstein (Harvard University), Jeannette Brosig-Koch (University of Magdeburg) and Michael Kirchler (University of Innsbruck).

The school targets international PhD students and PostDocs and aims to provide the tools needed to analyze key determinants of individual behavior and market performance in credence goods markets (with a wide definition of credence goods), such as markets for health care, repair and legal services, as well as markets for financial advice and fund management. In addition, science as a credence good, metasciences approaches, and nudging are subjects of the course.

Integrated in the schools' program is the two-day summit which brings together leading researchers who study theoretical, empirical, behavioral, or experimental aspects of un(ethical) behavior in markets. Keynotes will be provided by Cass Sunstein from the Harvard University and Susann Fiedler from the Vienna University of Economics and Business.
