The Behavioural Science Institute
(BSI) is a multidisciplinary research institute and one of the three research institutes of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Radboud University. Our researchers collaborate across the boundaries of psychology, pedagogical and educational sciences, and communication science. Our mission is to strengthen people through understanding the foundations of human behaviour, by creating synergy between different paradigms and by facilitating craftsmanship, curiosity and connection in academic research. BSI has seven research programmes covering three major research themes, namely human development, connection and health. BSI conducts fundamental as well as applied/translational research and has excellent facilities and support for lab and field research. Moreover, the institute is known for its successful graduate school and strong commitment to open science.
The Social Development programme
conducts fundamental research with practical implications on social development across the life span. In addition to researching peer relations
, our department also studies emotion regulation, trauma, ADHD, parent-infant interactions and substance use, and we teach courses on developmental psychology in the Bachelor’s programme and in the Master’s programme on mental healthcare.
At Radboud University, we aim to make an impact through our work. We achieve this by conducting groundbreaking research, providing high-quality education, offering excellent support, and fostering collaborations within and outside the university.
