The CIRANO Experimental Economics Laboratory was implemented in the year 2000 and was initially funded by Bell Canada through its R&D support program called the Bell University Laboratories. CIRANO thus provides a high tech infrastructure, and funding (as needed) available to researchers from Montreal and beyond in order to increase the scope of the various experiments that they conduct.

A great number of the experiments we ran in the laboratory in the past were part of a CIRANO affiliated research project. CIRANO's experimental economics group also organizes workshops and conferences pertaining to this research area - for more details, visit their website.

Located downtown Montreal, the CIRANO Laboratory is a high tech computer laboratory available for all your experimental activities. It features 20 networked high quality workstations with high speed Internet access. If needed, each workstation can be isolated in order to simulate independent working environments.
