Welcome

Welcome to the Website of the projects VStud („Verhaltensökonomisch motivierte Maßnahmen zur Sicherung des Studienerfolgs — Behaviorally informed interventions to help students succeed”) and SvStud („Skalierbare verhaltensökonomische Maßnahmen zur Sicherung des Studienerfolgs“ — Scalable behaviorally informed interventions to help students succeed”).

Both projects are funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and are carried out collectively by the University of Erfurt and the University of Applied Sciences Nuremberg Georg Simon Ohm.The project managers are Prof. Dr. Oliver Himmler (Erfurt) and Prof. Dr. Robert Jäckle (Nuremberg). 

We develop, implement, and evaluate behaviorally informed interventions that aim to improve students performance and increase study success by conducting randomized controlled field experiments (RCTs). Further information can be found in the respective articles (publications).
