The annual International Workshop on Experimental Economics and Finance is one component of the effort by WISE to establish a leading research center in Experimental Economics and Finance. In the fall of 2010 the Finance and Economics Experimental Lab (FEEL) at WISE commenced operation. This state of the art facility is part of the Ministry of Education Key Laboratory in Econometrics awarded to WISE in 2010. This is the first Ministry Key Lab established outside the physical or natural sciences. Furthermore, WISE is actively recruiting faculty members at all levels to join our efforts and enjoy the strong intellectual environment and quality of life, and welcomes applications or enquiries from all qualified and interested scholars.
