The Department of Economics is the home to Scotland's first experimental economics laboratory: the Scottish Experimental Economics Laboratory (SEEL).  This state-of-the-art experimental lab has been the focus of academic excellence and has been used to enhance our understanding of how markets work and how individuals make decisions. The facility has enabled the Business School to attract a group of internationally recognised scholars who use experimental methods to further our understanding of economic theory and its applications to diverse areas such as development economics, public economics, labour economics and the design of markets. With its prominent academic presence it further supports the Department of Economics’ strong link to HERU where experimental methods have been used to determine incentives and outcomes in health care provision.
