ExSIDE Innovative Training Network ‘Expectations and Social Influence Dynamics in Economics’

Expectations play a crucial role in Economics…

The Innovative Training Network ExSIDE aims at improving our understanding of the role of expectation formation and social influence for economic dynamics and for the optimal design of economic policy. ExSIDE combines an interdisciplinary research agenda with an innovative European joint doctoral training program, which provides doctoral fellows with a broad range of expertise and skills needed for a thorough analysis of expectation formation processes and their role in Economics. Both the research projects and the training activities will combine work in Behavioral Economics, Psychoanalysis, Opinion Formation, Network Theory, Agent-based Simulation and Economic Modelling in different areas. The academic training will be complemented by extensive Transferable Skills Training Measures, intersectoral Training Measures, provided by non-academic partners, and Career Development Training. Interaction with stakeholders, policy makers and the general public will play an important role in pursuing the ExSIDE agenda and disseminating the results.
ExSIDE is carried out by a consortium of eight renowned European Universities in cooperation with nine non-academic partners. The transdisciplinary consortium includes institutions from seven European countries and builds on long joint experience in cooperation in research and supervision. ExSIDE is coordinated by Bielefeld University in Germany.
