Subtle interventions (nudges) in people’s surroundings can influence their decision-making process. This project includes developing and testing the effectiveness of nudges in different situations.
A subproject is ‘Nudging the student’ in which diverse subtle interventions were tested in the educational environment of the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.
In 2016 we have been working with Research Centre Innovations in Care to design nudges for patients of diabetes to help improve their life style.
Currently we are working together with the Municipality of Rotterdam to design nudges that aid civil servants in attained their objectives at work. At the end of 2017 a study on the effect of nudges on students’ study success will be completed.
