The purpose of this course is to expose master students from MScBEC (FBM), MScM (HEC), and MScE (HEC) to interdisciplinary work, research, and ideas in behavior, economics, and evolution. This course is part of the BEE program ("Behavior, Economics, and Evolution") and is composed of lecture series where students will have the opportunity to interact with invited speakers and with each other.


The course is composed of up to 10 lecture series. Each such lecture session will be given by an international renowned invited speaker and be composed of two parts. The first part will consist of one hour of seminar where the invited speaker will give an interdisciplinary and broad introduction to a research topic, which can be followed by students from both economics and biology. This introduction will then be followed by a presentation of a research, published or ongoing. The second part of a session will consist of a discussion of the research topic of the lecture between the invited speaker, the students of the BEE program (from HEC and FBM), and will be moderated by the instructors of the course.

Speakers who will come this year are: Carel van Schaik (University of Zurich), Séverine Toussaert (University of Oxford), Michael Cant (University of Exeter), Willem Frankenhuis (Radbout University), Astrid Dannenberg (University of Kassel), Annette Baudish (Max Plank Institute), Virginie Maris (CNRS), Andrea Migliaio (University of Zurich), Christian Thoni (University of Lausanne), Corine Apicella (University of Pennsylvania)


First attempt

Without exam (cf. terms)  

Your grade will be determined on the basis of participation to the lecture series (10%), 3 group reports (65%), and an individual report (25%), where the two latter will be based on the lecture series.

-Each group report is teamwork from 2 to 3 students that is based on one presentation of an invited speaker and the follow up discussion. The report will involve describing the research question, the motivation behind it, summarizing the results, and delineating strengths and weaknesses.

-The individual report will consists of the writing of a sketch of an original research project and motivating it, and that builds on what you have learned by writing the group reports.
