Current Research Projects

The fair division of losses

(joint project with the Institute of Sociology at the University of Leipzig; Applicants and scientific heads; Prof. Dr. Roger Berger and Prof. Dr. Dr. Bodo Vogt)

This project aims at the examination of distribution problems of individual and corporate actors. The EU Member States' on-going debate on the allocation of refugees highlights this situation's high degree of relevance. This example also shows that in many real-life situations not only gains need to be divided, but also losses. This gives rise to the questions: How do actors decide in situations in which losses have to be divided and what influences their behavior?

This project is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, BE 2373/4-1)

Consumer Research

In a joint research cluster Professor Dr. M. Sarstedt (Chair in Marketing), Professor Dr. Dr. B. Vogt (Chair in Empirical Economics), and Junior Professor Dr. Marcel Lichters (Junior Professorship for Consumer Behavior) team up to generate insights about different consumer groups, their preferences and the mechanisms that trigger certain behaviors. We conduct and disseminate rigorous research that generates innovative insight, relevant to business practice.
