Cambridge University Behavioural Insights Team
CUBIT aims to facilitate networking between researchers interested in the translation of behavioural science across the University. We connect social psychologists, behavioural economists, experts in public policy, health, the environment, engineering and design with others who would like to use the latest behavioural insights to tackle the challenges of today. This project is in its first stages, and we hope to facilitate a range of behavioural insights inspired-activities across the University.
CUBIT holds regular Panel Events, a Journal Club (Reading Group), Careers Events, Applied Behavioural Insights sessions, Behavioural Science Skills Workshops and more!
