GreeNudge are researching how principles from behavioural economics, such as “nudging”, can influence decision-making and preferences around sustainable foods. They are now looking for students in Sweden and Norway who would like to assist with the data collection for these studies.

The aim of the nudges is to make sustainable food dishes more attractive to consumers and make them more willing to reduce their food waste. The research data will be collected during 2015 and 2016, with the first study period in March, April and May 2015. Methods include observations, surveys, interviews, and analysis of data about changes in consumption from specific restaurants.

GreeNudge are looking for students in social science or economics who will have the responsibility to observe and register the behaviour of guests in a restaurant in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim, ensure that nudges are in place, register the amount of food waste as well as document and report the data collection.

The students will receive training for the research tasks and will also be able to use the collected data in their own academic work. The work will be remunerated.
