Economic Experiments


Welcome to Experimental Economics at the University of Gothenburg!

Experimental Economics at the University of Gothenburg is a facility for conducting economic and financial experiments. It is located at the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. We are constantly looking for students, who are willing to register at our online recruitment system and participate in the experiments.

What are Economic Experiments?

Economic experiments tackle real world economic problems in a laboratory setting. By means of laboratory experiments we test the validity of economic theories and test-bed new market mechanisms. Thus, it provides us with the possibility to enrich economic theories and experimental data may help to put forward new theories. Furthermore, economic experiments offer the feature of controlled and standardized analysis of relevant real-world economic problems.

What does it mean to participate in an experiment?

As a participant in an experiment, you are requested to make decisions (e.g. "choose an action A, B, or C", "set a price for a good", "trade assets", etc.). All the information that you need to perform the task is provided in the experiment.

Your decisions will be processed anonymously.

The results of the experiments will be used for scientific studies and reports


You will be compensated for participating in the experiments. How much money you will earn, however, can depend on how successful your decisions are and on the duration of the experiment. On average you will earn 150 SEK per hour and an experiment lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.

What happens when I have registered?

Once you have registered in the database you will get an e-mail when and where experiments are conducted. If you have time and you are willing to participate you can enroll yourself for the experiment.
