Project title: Potsdam Laboratory for Economic Experiments
Project duration: since 2015
Project leader: Prof. Dr. Lisa Bruttel
The Potsdam Laboratory for Economic Experiments (PLEx) is an economic experimental laboratory. It includes two laboratories with 20 computer workstations each, used by the involved researchers to examine economic decision-making behaviour based on controlled and incentivated experiments. These experiments allow for the reproduction of economic theories and models, while merely changing single variables, making it possible to test and expand the underlying theories based on the collected data.
