Over the last few decades or so, behavioural and experimental economics have fundamentally changed the way economists conceptualize the world. Therefore it is natural for the University of Calgary's economics department to join this fruitful endeavour. CBEEL, University of Calgary Behavioural and Experimental Economics Laboratory was founded in 2002 to support research, teaching, and policy applications involving controlled experiments with human decision makers. The central objective of CBEEL is to promote the development and application of economics and related academic disciplines as empirical social science. Ongoing research in the Center involves development of economic theory supported by data.
