The Association for Cross-Cultural Experimental Economic Research (ACCER) was founded by a group of researchers who are engaged in cross-cultural and inter-cultural empirical research in economics primarily by applying experimental methodology.
We put this objective into practice by
By establishing a network of scholars working in this field, ACCER aims at encouraging and supporting a lively academic exchange to enhance intercultural understanding and deal with intercultural differences.
The founders of ACCER have more than 10 years of experience in cross-cultural and intercultural experimental economics research between Germany, China, Israel, Palestine, Finland, Norway, Korea, and Argentina.
Our goal is to
