About us

The Helsinki Laboratory for Behavioral and Experimental Studies (Helsinki LABBET) is a multidisciplinary laboratory for experimental research in human sciences. Researchers affiliated with the laboratory come from various backgrounds, including economics, marketing, and philosophy. The laboratory was established in 2020.

Experimental methodology in human sciences involves collecting data from human participants in a controlled environment. Controlled experiments provide a way for the researcher to analyse causality by observing changes in the outcome when a specific factor is exogenously manipulated. Additionally, questionnaires and surveys may be used as complementary methods to collect data, thus providing further insight into the question at hand.
