Add event:

In 2017, Evelien Crone (Leiden University) was awarded the Dr Hendrik Muller Prize for Behavioural and Social Sciences. She will spend part of the monetary prize on the organisation of the ‘Utrecht Leiden Winter school on interdisciplinary research’ for young scholars (e.g. PhD candidates and Postdocs) working in the field of Law, Behavioural and Social Sciences.

During the two day Winter School, young and talented researchers from several disciplines will be educated and trained in order to strengthen their interdisciplinary research capabilities and to help them to address challenges in inter- and multidisciplinary research. The aim of the event is to support the participating researchers in starting and developing specific interdisciplinary research projects, as well as to develop and strengthen an interdisciplinary mindset amongst the participants in general.

Next to key note lectures by Willem van Boom (Leiden University), Jennifer K. Robbennolt (University of Illinois) and Cristoph Engel (Max Planck Institute of Research on Collective Goods), participants can take part in interactive seminars to reflect on their research ideas, generate new research ideas and receive feedback from the panel experts and their peers. The subjects of the three panels are: free will, nudging and emotions. There will also be a workshop on creative thinking. The will be chaired by Evelien Crone and Ivo Giesen (Utrecht University).
