Welcome to CeDEx

The Centre for Decision Research and Experimental Economics (CeDEx) was founded in 2000. The focus for the Centre is research into individual and strategic decision-making using a combination of theoretical and experimental methods. It is based in the School of Economics at The University of Nottingham and has been funded by grants from the ESRC, the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy and the Nuffield Foundation.

Members of CeDEx are affiliated with international research institutions including the Institute for the Future of Labor, the ESRC Network for Integrated Behavioural Science and the EC Joint Research Centre. Research is published in leading international journals and field journals. CeDEx publishes its own discussion paper series and runs a weekly workshop.
