Behavioral Insights for Better Urban Services
This half-day workshop will highlight ways in which organizations can use behavioral science and evidence-based research to make public services and social programs simpler and more effective.
Organized by the Center for Experimental and Behavioral Public Administration (CEBPA) at Rutgers University–Newark's School of Public Affairs and Administration (SPAA), the workshop will center on experiences and lessons learned from two of the first behavioral insights teams to operate successfully in major cities in the Northeast: Lab@DC (in Washington, DC) and GovLabPHL (in the City of Philadelphia). Workshop participants will learn how these teams were created, how they operate, what partnerships they have formed with universities and others, and what challenges and opportunities they face. The overall aim of the workshop is to learn how behavioral insights can be used to improve urban services and community quality of life through collaborations between applied behavioral scientists and organizations providing urban services.
