Prof. Schmidt is founding director and deputy speaker of the “Munich Experimental Laboratory for Economic and Social Sciences (MELESSA)”. There are 15 professors from four different departments involved in this experimental laboratory. It was created in 2007 with the support of the “Excellence Initiative of the German federal government” and is now funded by the participating chairs and departments.
In this laboratory we analyze economic decision making. If you are interested in taking part in these experiments (for an adequate payment), please visit the MELESSA homepage.
