Thurgauer Institute of Economics

The Thurgau Institute of Economics (TWI) is associated with the University of Konstanz. It is a cross-border center for experimental research in economics. The objective of the research is to contribute to the understanding of individual behavior in economic environments. 

The experiments take place in a lab at the University of Konstanz. In these experiments the participants face decision problems with monetary consequences. They can win or lose money depending on their own behavior and the behavior of the other participants. Experiments help to investigate behavior in different economic situations, e.g. market exchange, human cooperation or behavior in risky environments.
