Sponsors work with us to make people happier, healthier and wealthier, at home and abroad
The work of the Center for Advanced Hindsight is supported and expanded through research sponsors. Sponsors tend to have a vested interest in research related to health and ﬁnancial behaviors at home and abroad. While each sponsorship is tailored to the needs and abilities of the sponsoring organization, there tend to be one to three typical areas that a sponsor supports and beneﬁts from.
APPLIED RESEARCH ON SPONSOR'S PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
APPLIED RESEARCH WITH THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS
We work with our sponsors to design and test scalable, sustainable, and high-impact behavior change solutions. Because every sponsor is unique, our behavioral researchers work closely with each organization to deﬁne the scope and nature of our relationship. Once we determine speciﬁc needs, dedicated Center staff carry out activities with sponsoring organizations that range from behavior mapping, workshops, ﬁeld experiments, data analysis, and reporting of results.
What are some beneﬁts of sponsorship?
Early access to research ﬁndings across the lab
Input and direction
Input and direction for a relevant research agenda, often directly related to their own products or services
Workshops on behavioral science to build internal capacity for applying behavioral insights and experimentation
On-call advice and feedback from behavioral experts in the lab
Thought leadership in the ﬁeld of behavioral economis
A variety of written reports, papers or press related to the research ﬁndings
“We've assembled a talented and passionate team of researchers who are committed to helping people be happier, healthier and wealthier. I am so proud of how this team has provided so many organizations over the years with new knowledge on how individuals make decisions related to their health and ﬁnances." - Dan Ariely
Rigorous and Relevant: At CAH, academic rigor does not come at the cost of real-world relevance. Quite the opposite -- relevance makes the rigor possible. Nobody is better at putting scientific knowledge to work to reach practical, actionable solutions.
The Center for Advanced Hindsight has been a valuable resource to Thrivent Financial as we explore ways to help our members be wise with money and feel financially secure. We especially appreciate the Center's ability to help us frame and conduct studies and tests to understand people's attitudes and behaviors related to money. They get us.
We have built and pioneered a shared value insurance model that has had a global impact. Fundamental to this has been an understanding and incentivization of behavior change. Dan Ariely and his Center for Advanced Hindsight have been hugely influential as both a resource and a partner in innovation. We are grateful to Dan and his team, and look forward to working with them into the future in the pursuit of changing lives and making people healthier.
