Nuremberg Experimental Research Days

The center for economic behavior and institution design, in collaboration with the EFI-project “Taxation, Social Norms, and Compliance: Lessons for Institution Design” and SABE/IAREP/ICABEEP is organizing the first two-day international doctoral/post-doctoral workshop “Nuremberg Experimental Research Days” (NERD), September 18-19, 2014.

The aim of the workshop is to promote cooperation among young ascending scientists who are in the early stages of their career. Having a background either in economics or in psychology, the researchers should be in the late stages of their Ph.D. or early in their post-doc, have a strong profile in behavioral economics, and the potential to tread the path of a scientific career. By joining a small group of these scientists to present and discuss their ideas, we intend to create a network with strong bonds that will be beneficial for the advancement of their careers.

Keynote lectures

We are happy to announce keynote lectures by:

Nikos Nikiforakis and

Marie Claire Villeval.

Kick-Off Meeting

foto_fau_workshop_on_tax_compliance_2012The interdisciplinary research group ‘Taxation, Social Norms, and Compliance: Lessons for Institution Design’, which is one of the projects funded by the FAU Emerging Fields Initiative, started its work with a workshop boasting high-profile experts in Nuremberg on the 12th and 13th of March 2012.

[—]

The research group includes FAU researchers from the fields of business studies and economics, sociology, law, psychology, and neurosciences. They will collaborate in an attempt to gain a better understanding of tax compliance and institution design.

more about the meeting

During the interdisciplinary workshop, renowned experts presented their work on the design and the effects of institutions, on behavioural patterns of tax payers and on methodological questions in research on tax compliance. Andreas Diekmann (ETH Zurich), for instance, presented a statistical technique which allows for reliable surveys on sensitive issues such as moonlighting and tax evasion. Vienna psychologist Erich Kirchler presented comprehensive studies on the interplay between institutional power and the willingness of individuals to cooperate. Kai Konrad, Head of the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance in Munich, presented a research project which studies how the perception of one’s own ability to lie influences an individual’s tax compliance in different institutions.

The workshop, which, besides local and invited researchers, included industry partners from the market research company GfK, proved a successful start to a comprehensive national and international exchange on the research project’s topic. Further events with the numerous regional industry partners are planned for the near future. In the long run, the research group aims to establish a centre that will address the topic of tax acceptance and tax compliance on the highest academic level, closely collaborating with industry partners at the same time.
