The SFB (Special Research Unit) “Credence Goods, Incentives and Behavior” at the University of Innsbruck is delighted to announce the third edition of the Innsbruck Winter School on Credence Goods, Incentives and Behavior. The Winter School will focus on theoretical, experimental and behavioral approaches towards analyzing the economic implications of credence goods and will be taught by Loukas Balafoutas and Rudolf Kerschbamer (both from the University of Innsbruck). In addition, special sessions on selected topics in Behavioral Economics/Finance will be held by Martin Dufwenberg (University of Arizona), Brit Grosskopf (University of Exeter), and Michael Kirchler (University of Innsbruck and University of Göteborg).

The purpose of this Winter School is to provide students with 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. The Winter School reaches out to PhD students and PostDocs in economics, finance, and other related social sciences that apply theoretical and/or experimental methods in their respective fields.

Part of the program will be the two-day workshop Innsbruck Winter Summit – (Un)Ethical Behavior in Markets. Keynotes will be given by Roland Bénabou (Princeton University), Edi Karni (Johns Hopkins University), and Bettina Rockenbach (University of Cologne).

With the University of Innsbruck being located in the middle of the Alps, the Winter School will be held a 40 minutes’ drive away in Kühtai, a small town located 2020 meters above sea level in a picturesque ski area. It offers the perfect combination of learning from outstanding experts in the field, networking opportunities among young researchers and a wide range of winter sport activities.
