Social and Behavioural Sciences

For research and education within the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences there is currently one specific Named Fund.

Leiden University received a gift from the Utopa Foundation for its Department of Social, Economic and Organisational Psychology to set up a a Psychology and Economic Psychology research and teaching fund and a new knowledge centre, which will help improve financial literacy in the general population.


Psychological insights are essential to understanding people’s economic behaviour. Utopa Foundation has made the gift because it wants to support the University’s research and teaching in the field of economic psychology. With the new knowledge centre in Leiden, these insights will also be used to help promote the financial literacy of the Dutch population. At the centre, lectures, seminars, workshops and courses will be given to professionals from the practice, policymakers and other interested parties.
