Event description


The Behavioural Science Summit is here!

Join us for one day in June at the beautiful Warwick University campus to hear from the brightest minds and from people who make policies using behavioural science

Hosted by The Warwick Behavioural Insights Team, you can expect some of the leading thinkers and practitioners in behavioural science, marketing, advertising and more. You’ll be joined by students and academics with a shared interest in behavioural economics, psychology, neuroeconomics and choice theory.

Apart from our curiosity, we are united in our belief of the potential for these disciplines to not only significantly improve peoples’ quality of life but also to give businesses new tools with which to solve some of the biggest challenges.

What will I hear?

  • Stimulating insight from cutting-edge behavioural research

  • Turning theory into action: leading practitioners in the field will share their experience of nudging in the real world

  • The latest case studies from around the globe. They will explain the science, the application and (most importantly) the results they have achieved.
