We are delighted to receive the START Prize 2023 from the Austrian Science Fund!

We are delighted to announce that we have been selected in this year’s FWF selection process for the START Prize. This funding of 1.1 million euros will allow us to investigate the dynamic interaction within groups in detail. In particular, we aim to understand why groups often fail to utilize deviant performances, information, and criticism. Using cutting-edge technologies such as mobile eye-tracking and AI analyses, we intend to precisely capture and analyze the dynamic collaboration within groups.

Political and Intercultural Psychology

Our goal in the Political and Intercultural Psychology group is to understand the basic group processes that drive our everyday life, including how we interact with people of different backgrounds, make political decisions, and decide what is best for us. We currently focus on collective planning, criticism within and between groups and group reactions to low performers. This goal also guides our teaching and we share our research findings with news outlets and the public.
