About the AC3

The Amsterdam-Copenhagen Cooperation Colloquia (AC3) are a series of online talks on interdisciplinary cooperation research. The series is sponsored by the Amsterdam Cooperation Lab at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (PI Daniel Balliet) and the Personality and Social Psychology Group at the University of Copenhagen (PIs Robert Böhm and Ingo Zettler).

With the AC3, we aim to provide a forum for recent research on cooperation in humans and other animals. The series is interdisciplinary and international by design. The AC3 will feature speakers working in a wide range of disciplines (anthropology, biology, economics, psychology, etc.) and with a variety of methods (lab and field experiments, ethnography, experience sampling, computational modelling). We are especially committed to a diversity of speakers, including those who may otherwise face barriers to speaking at departmental colloquia.

The AC3 are organised by Shuxian Jin at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Simon Columbus at the University of Copenhagen. Please feel free to contact us in case you have any queries.
