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. 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. There is much interest in policy tools which take into account the realities of people's perceptions, judgements and choices.
The NIBS project was funded by two large ESRC grants totalling £5.7million during the period 31 December 2012 to 30 June 2022. During the latter period of funding (NIBS2) the focus of research was:
- advancing behavioural science relevant to the understanding of consumer behaviour (both at the general level and with specific reference to consumer and household finance)
- market response to that behaviour; and
- regulation of markets and formulation of public policy.
Although NIBS is not currently in receipt of direct funding, its members continue to collaborate on research and take advantage of networking opportunities.
