Behavioural Insights Team University Leiden

BIT UL is an initiative from the Knowledge Centre. The team focuses on solving behavioural issues that arise at the Leiden University.


Who is BIT UL?

BIT UL currently consists of researchers/advisors from the Knowledge Center. 


What kinds of behavioural issues is the team currently working on? 

BIT UL gives support and advice on several stages of solving behavioural issues: formulating the problem, investiging the behavioural drivers of the particular behaviour and developing (effective) interventions to change behaviour.


The team focuses on different topics within the Leiden University, such as:

  • How do we ensure that employees turn off the heating and close the windows when they leave a room/hall for the rest of the day?
  • What are the reasons that employees do not lock their laptops when they leave them (briefly) and do not use strong passwords?
  • How do you ensure that people do not unnecessarily leave the fume hood on high ventilation?
  • How do you stimulate academic staff to travel internationally by train instead of plane?


BIT UL works on projects exclusively for Leiden University. Would you like to know more? Get in touch with Hannah de Boer or Alien van der Vliet.
