Behavioral Economic Engineering and Responsible Management

With Behavioral Engineering the "Behavioral Economic Engineering and Responsible Management" workgroup focuses primarily on the identification of problems such as behavioral biases in economic laboratory experiments and the subsequent correction of these biases through appropriate interventions. In the field of Responsible Management, the focus is on topics such as sustainability, corporate responsibility and business ethics.

Research questions of the work group concern projects like "Behavioral Biases in human-in-the-loop control", which deals with the role of feedback during decision processes in human-machine interactions. Appropriate mechanisms should help to counteract biases of perception and behavior in human decisions. In the DFG-funded project "An Experimental Approach for the Study of Effective Compliance and Integrity Measures Improving Whistleblowing Behaviors", the workgroup is investigating the design of company-wide ethics programs to promote whistleblowing.

The workgroup also attaches great importance to the proximity of application: Projects in cooperation with Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co KG and PwC provide students with exciting insights into practice-oriented sustainability strategies, sustainability reporting, compliance management and corruption prevention.
