- A special issue in the journal Energy Policy, which will consist of invited papers based on screening of the accepted abstracts.

The BEHAVE 2018 held in Zurich received 200 abstracts and attracted 330 participants. BEHAVE 2020-2021 is expected to make another record high in participants and another three days of exciting discussions and networking..


Compared with previous years, the upcoming BEHAVE 2020-2021 will have more coverage on developing countries, more significant presence of participants outside Europe, the private sector as well as experience sharing from international development agencies and the United Nations on integrating behavioural economics in international development assistance projects to developing countries. Given the latest scientific and policy developments, BEHAVE 2020-2021 is also expected to contribute to the transition to a climate-neutral future.
