The Laboratory for Experimental Anthropology, also called Anthropo-Lab, is a research unit of ETHICS (Experiments, Transhumanism, Human Interactions, Care & Society – EA 7476), Equipe d’Accueil of the Facultés de l’Université Catholique de Lille. Anthropo-Lab promotes the study of human behavior in controlled laboratory and field settings. We use a wide set of experiments ranging from laboratory (Anthropo-Room) and field (Anthropo-Field) experiments to large scale incentivized online experiments to study individual and group behavior.



The Anthropo-Lab team organized a large scale experiment for the World Forum for a Responsable Economy. The video (in French) presents the experimental set-up. The objective was to show the usefulness of the experimental method for private and public organizations.


Matteo M. Marini, a PhD student from the University of Insubria, will be visiting Anthropo-Lab from October 2016 to July 2017. Matteo works on behavioral economics. Welcome Matteo !



Since it has been shown that cooperation increases with the size of the group, we decided to add one new member to our Anthropo-Lab team. We are happy to announce that Andrea GUIDO joined Anthropo-Lab as a PhD student. Andrea will be supervized by Nicolas Vaillant (Lille Catholic University) and Giuseppe Attanasi (University of Lille 1) and his work will focus on the determinants of human cooperation & trust on online sharing platforms. Welcome Andrea!
