Behavioural insights for societal and business impact

Project lead: Dr. Janneke Blijlevens, School of Economics, Finance and Marketing

The aim of this project is to build capabilities at RMIT to translate behavioral research into deep-reaching and wide-ranging solutions for government and business practitioners. As a first step, the team will survey the research currently conducted at RMIT and identify fruitful areas for the application of behavioural science. Once promising areas are identified, they will organise two workshops bringing together researchers from across various departments in the College of Business, other Colleges, industry partners, and policymakers. These workshops aim to leverage the wealth of talent and specialized knowledge across RMIT and our partners in industry and government to produce synergies in the pursuit of innovative, policy-relevant, and high-value-added research.
