Tungodden granted Einstein Visiting Fellowship

Einstein Foundation has agreed to a funding proposal by Georg Weizsäcker to grant one of its prestiguous Einstein Visiting Fellowships to Bertil Tungodden.

Professor Bertil Tungodden is Director of FAIR, Centre for experimental Research on Fairness, Inequality and Rationality at NHH. 

The Einstein Foundation explains why Tungodden has been granted an Einstein Visiting Fellowship, starting in April 2019:

«Professor Tungodden is one of Europe's most accomplished researchers in the fields of behavioral and developmental economics. He is an eminent researcher with a close substantive connection to the work of the CRC 190 Rationality and Competition established in. Bertil Tungodden is the co-chair of the FAIR Center at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) in Bergen that hosts many researchers in the same area as the CRC 190. His Einstein Visiting Fellowship will create sustainable research cooperation with many ties among individual researchers between Berlin and Bergen.

Why do experimental research on fairness, inequality and rationality?

Why is it important to do experimental research on fairness, inequality and rationality? We sit down with some of the experts to hear what they have to say.

The aim of the project proposed for the Einstein Visiting Fellowship is to combine expertise in different approaches to study the heterogeneity of different fairness standards as well as other deviations from the standard model and disentangling their impacts.

During his regular visits to Berlin, Bertil Tungodden will interact closely with the PostDoc and the doctoral student who will be employed under the project, and with the broad scientific community in his area of research».

The Einstein Foundation Berlin was founded in 2009 by the State of Berlin. The Foundation aims to promote science and research of top international calibre in Berlin and to establish the city as a centre of scientific excellence. In addition to its endowment, the Foundation also receives state funding.
