About

The Centre for Behavioural Economics, Society and Technology (BEST) is a national and international leader in applied behavioural research. The Centre draws on QUT’s expertise in Behavioural Insights, such as applied in economics and social marketing, while leveraging and amplifying QUT’s expertise in health, science, technology and creative industries. The BEST Centre brings together researchers interested in applying Behavioural Insights to address real world problems in close collaboration with government, industry and the not-for-profit sector.
