INSEAD 1st Randomized Controlled Trials Day workshop

Part 1: INSEAD RCT Research Workshop
The first INSEAD RCT Day started with an academic research workshop. At this workshop, five leading international scholars presented and discussed their research: David McKenzie (World Bank), Bruno Crépon (ENSAE, Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab - JPAL), Imran Rasul (University College London), Lucia Del Carpio (INSEAD), and Stephen Anderson-Macdonald (London Business School). Overall, 36 participants attended the research workshop, including researchers from five universities in the UAE (INSEAD, NYU Abu Dhabi, American University of Sharjah, UAE University and Zayed University) and participants from Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt.

Part 2: INSEAD RCT Majlis: How To Make Better Decisions Based on Evidence from Field Experiments
The first INSEAD RCT Day closed with the 'INSEAD RCT Majlis', an exclusive event for senior decision makers from the government and industry. Florian Schloderer from the INSEAD RCT Lab explained: "At the Majlis, we engaged stakeholders in a conversation with researchers how randomized field experiments could create value to them. Such conversations are vital to design and implement projects that promote academic research and create impact."
