Research Center

The employees of our department are part of the research center Innsbruck Decision Sciences (IDS).

The research center Innsbruck Decision Sciences (IDS) focuses on the investigation of human behavior in economic decision-making. The span of fields covered ranges from daily consumption choices, over basic questions on the role of economic preferences and personality traits for economic decisions to decisions with long-term consequences such as the selection of pension plans, financial decisions or decisions regarding a sustainable style of life. A special focus is devoted to the use of digital technologies and its role in supporting and improving economic decision-making.

The methodological focus of this research center is the experimental method in analyzing human behavior, which is used in close connection to mathematical modelling and empirical data analyses. Thus, Innsbruck Decision Sciences is pooling the research expertise in the areas of Experimental and Behavioral Economics and Management and is a university-wide competence center for research in Decision Sciences. Innsbruck Decision Sciences is part of the research area “Economy, Politics & Society (EPoS)”.
