GECS-Research Group on Experimental and Computational Sociology aims to integrate computational and experimental research to explain complex social and economic phenomena, such as markets, organisational behaviour and scientific collaboration. Formally established in 2007, it aims to promote innovative interdisciplinary research in economics and sociology by exploiting the advantage of modelling, computer simulation, and lab and field experiments.

GECS operates through personal collaboration, common participation in research projects and the organisation of scientific events. It is involved in training and education initiatives addressed to young scholars. It regularly also hosts external Ph.D. students and Post-Docs for jointed research projects.
