Feedback form is now closed.

The aim of this talk will be to discuss the challenges to apply innovative methods and disciplines such as behavioural economics and experimentation in developing countries like Mexico. The main takeaway will be a roadmap on how to achieve this goal, a lot has been said about Nudge or Innovation Units in developed countries, however –in our experience- different strategies need to be applied in countries with less developed institutions to guarantee autonomy, sustainability, and gold standards. Moreover, we will present some results applying behavioural economics and experimentation to tackle some of the big challenges in México: corruption and gender equality.
