Behind the scienceA multidisciplinary team of scientists and practitioners

The BeSci team was established in 2015, and has been growing the practice of BeSci across the Government of Canada (GC) ever since.

Today, our team is composed of a central team of researchers housed in the Privy Council Office and multiple Behavioural Science Fellows who are embedded within line departments. Our Fellows support the integration of BeSci insights and methods into priority program and policy areas within each of their departments.

While our team members have diverse academic backgrounds and an array of methodological specialties, we all share a passion for understanding human behaviour and using that understanding to drive change. Combining our knowledge of the literature with cutting-edge research and experimentation practices is what we do best.
