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. Following a successful bid to the ESRC Large Grants Competition, we were awarded over £2 million to extend and advance achievements of the existing NIBS network, through to September 2021. The focus of current research (NIBS2) is:
- 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.
