Cambridge University Behavioural Insights Student Society
We are a group of undergraduate and postgraduate students from the University of Cambridge passionate about the behavioural sciences. We welcome everyone from all backgrounds who share our interest in psychology, behavioural economics, public policy, and much more!
Behavioural insights is a rapidly developing field that we think will provide many solutions to problems we have faced for centuries. Governments and institutions around the world have implemented all kinds of interventions to reduce drink driving, increase voting turnout, tax compliance, etc. These interventions are all founded on tested models of human behaviour,
In other words, we are curious about people, how we think, behave, and make decisions. Join us for many fascinating and intellectually-stimulating discussions! You might even come up with an intervention yourself to solve daily life problems!
