Masaryk University Experimental Economics Laboratory

Masaryk University Experimental Economics Laboratory (MUEEL) was established during autumn 2015 as a result of several years of research activities in an area of experimental economics. In November 2016 MUEEL transformed from a free group of academics of Faculty of Economics and Administration into an established research institute of the faculty. In October 2017 we opened two state-of-the-art laboratories. 


MUEEL members take a part in the investigation of multiple research projects as principal investigators or co-investigators.
