Projects at the RSI

The RSI promotes excellent research in economics in various fields, including micro- and macroeconomics, economic theory, applied economics, and behavioral economics. The institute encourages its researchers to incorporate findings from neighboring disciplines such as psychology, sociology, biology, and mathematics.
The thematic scope ranges from research on economic productivity and innovations in firms to studies about personal attitudes, political orientations, and social behavior in organizations and groups. Most research projects have a strong interdisciplinary focus and use experiments for data collection.
The research program is organized into nine closely related research areas.
