    BCCP’s research agenda is shaped by three main research questions: 1) What characterizes consumer and market behavior? 2) How should policies be optimally designed to protect consumers? 3) Are the existing institutions and policies effective? These research questions are applied to different topics and policy areas. With about 80 members, the spectrum of BCCP’s current research projects is broad. As a natural evolution of BCCP’s work over the past years, the effects of digitization on consumers and market participants are therefore a common theme throughout our three main research areas of consumer and market behavior, policy design and policy evaluation and a key topic in our research agenda.
