Dear All,

We are delighted to announce that the 21th Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality will take place from the 13th until the 21st of June 2023 and will be held at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, Germany.

The Summer Institute brings together talented young researchers and renowned scientists from around the globe and aims to spark a dialogue about decision making under the real-world constraints of limited time, information, and computational power. The Summer Institute offers a forum for young scholars from various disciplines to share their approaches, discuss their research, and inspire each other. The program will cover the fundamentals, methodology, and recent findings on bounded rationality.

This year’s Summer Institute will approach the topic of “Science of Boosting: How to Empower Citizens” and cover it through the lens of bounded rationality and interdisciplinary research on human decision making.

On behalf of the directors of the Summer Institute, Gerd Gigerenzer and Ralph Hertwig, we invite young scholars of decision making from all fields to apply. Participation is free, accommodation is provided, and travel expenses will partly be reimbursed.

Applications are open until March 15, 2023.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested.

Best wishes,

the Summer Institute Team

Marlene, Mubashir, Amanda
