The Radboud Center for Decision Science is an interdisciplinary research hub at Radboud University dedicated to advancing our knowledge of human decision-making. Through research collaborations across disciplines, and via partnerships with leading organisations, we produce high-quality scientific insights into people's decisions in order to drive and inform evidence-based policymaking and practice.
As part of a new series of initiatives, we will organize a monthly seminar series for behavioural scientists working in applied areas. In this series, Radboud University researchers affiliated with the Center will present some of their relevant recent work on decision-making, followed by a broad discussion regarding the potential applied and policy implications of this work. We will use the Center’s defined impact areas (environmental sustainability, social equality, good health and wellbeing, quality education, democracy and conflict resolution, and digitalisation and society) as organizing principles for this series, ideally circulating through each Impact Area in turn.
Thus, the seminar is an opportunity for behavioural scientists working in policy to be exposed to cuttingedge research and methods in a low-threshold manner, to allow for discussions with fellow policy experts on how the empirical insights can be implemented into policy, and also to help academic researchers with the process of translating decision science research to best practice applications.
The practical details: the seminar will last 1 hour and take place online, to allow for maximum ease of accessibility, and we will distribute a relevant paper beforehand to registered attendees which will be the basis for the discussion. The seminar itself will begin with a short presentation by the researcher, summarizing the paper with an emphasis on how the paper’s findings or ideas might be relevant for policy. During the remainder of the seminar, we will then facilitate a group discussion ensuring that everybody speaks a common language on topics of shared interest.
