Welcome to The Network for Integrated Behavioural Science

The Network for Integrated Behavioural Science (NIBS) is a partnership among the Universities of Nottingham, Warwick and East Anglia.  It is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) until September 2017.

We are a cross-disciplinary group of researchers who develop and test models of human behaviour and behavioural change, and draw out their implications for the formulation and evaluation of public policy. Some of our latest outputs are available here.
