Experimental Research Lab receives $150,000, 2 year HASS ERC Grant. – Feb 13, 2012

The Economic Research Laboratory (ERL) has received a $150,000 two-year grant from The Humanities and Social Science Enhancement of Research Capacity (HASS ERC) Internal Grants Program. The funding for the grant comes from the Division of Research and Graduate Studies and includes matching funding from the College of Liberal Arts. The grant proposal was written by Assistant Professor Alex Brown and Professor John Van Huyck. The key funding element in the grant is establishing a pool of funds for subject payments. These funds will be used in a series of pilot studies that will form the basis for larger grants that will sustain the ERL for years to come. The grant funds will support not only faculty research, but also graduate student and undergraduate student research. These research activities will serve to elevate the national stature of the program in behavioral economics.
