The Max-Jung-Lab is a research facility to conduct economic and social science experiments. Researchers from the University of Graz and their international cooperation partners use the lab to investigate how humans make decisions and interact with each other in various contexts, including, but not limited to, experimental markets, societies and organizations.
The Max-Jung-Lab was established in 2008 and its name preserves and commemorates the name and work of Maximilian Jung, one of the University of Graz’s pioneers in experimental economics, who passed away at the young age of 38. He was the dean of studies at the School of Business, Economics and Social Sciences and, together with Ulrike Leopold-Wildburger, established experimental economic research at the University of Graz.
In 2019, the lab became part of the University of Graz’s newly-founded Business Analytics and Data Science Center.
The lab features 16 cubicles with workstations managed and controlled from a lab server. Equipped with removable partition panels between workstations, the lab is suitable for both teaching and research.
All students of universities in Graz are warmly invited to participate in experiments in the Max-Jung-Lab. If you are interested, please sign up here to receive invitations to experiments.
Any questions and inquiries, for example regarding signing up to experiments, using the lab (which is also possible for guest researchers) or touring the lab, can be directed to experimente(at)uni-graz.at.
