The Department of Microeconomics and Public Economics of Maastricht University hosts the 13th Maastricht Behavioral and Experimental Economics Symposium (M-BEES) on June 8, 2020 and the 6th Maastricht Behavioral Economic Policy Symposium (M-BEPS) on June 9, 2020.

The broad topic of M-BEES is Theory and Experiments. M-BEES centers around the question if and how economic experiments can inform economic theory and vice versa.

M-BEPS brings together behavioral and experimental researchers from different disciplines as well as policy makers and practitioners interested in how behavioral economics can inform policies in government and business. The goal of M-BEPS is to encourage the discussion of relevant policy topics and the exchange among European policy makers, international researchers, and practitioners.

There will be contributed paper sessions on both days. We look forward to your submissions.
