Shedding light on the personal side of economics
Economics, finance, practical philosophy and neuroscience scholars are coming together in a multidisciplinary setting to study individual behaviour and economic performance. More precisely, they will focus on the economic outcomes of prevalent individual differences in cognitive capacity and neurophysiology. The EU-funded IBEP project, led by Tallinn University of Technology in Estonia, in collaboration with Aalto University and the University of Helsinki in Finland and Tel Aviv University in Israel, will build on a societally challenging research field, advanced contemporary research methodology and cost-efficient knowledge transfer activities for long-lasting effects in research excellence. The project's findings will highlight the importance of better economic policies and institutions that take into account the differences between people as well as their different responses to policy measures, leading to better utilisation of human capital endowment and enhanced economic performance.
