A global academic network of behavioral insights researchers

We share resources and hold online and digital events to promote research in behavioral science and public policy, also known as "behavioral insights."
Join us in an upcoming event!

Join us for our free public bi-weekly global seminar series.

Each session features a researcher's latest project from an academic institution or non-profit, in order to share and learn from experimental designs, results, and BI research contributions.

Tired of eating alone? We are too! Sessions are scheduled during 12-2pm EST to allow for Brown Bag breaks for government practitioners and policy enthusiasts.

Feel free to come and go as you please, taking what is relevant for you from the talk.

Zoom links will be sent out via email.

Pre-registration is necessary for attendance.

We believe that a future focused on sustainability requires concerted efforts to learn, share, and conduct scientific research on human behavior and public policies.

Our global network is committed to ensuring that all behavioral insights professionals are treated with dignity and respect, that all researchers are able to practice and apply their professional expertise with rigor and humility. Any bullying, racism, sexism, aggression, or unethical behavior will not be tolerated.

Whenever possible, we strive to align behavioral insights theory and practice to the promotion of sustainable development goals, uniting researchers who face similar challenges even when disconnected.
