The Data Linking Initiative in Behavioural Science (DLIBS) is an international network of researchers and practitioners willing to share their experiences and best practices to implement and promote ‘behavioural data linking’, that is, on linking data from behavioural economics experiments to representative surveys, administrative records, biomarkers banks, online panels, consumers scan data, and other big data sources.

The network was inaugurated at the first workshop on behavioural data linking, funded by the LSE Knowledge Exchange HEIF5 fund, and was jointly supported by the LSE Department of Social Policy and the LSE Social and Economic Data Sciences Unit.

DLIBS aims at bringing together scientists and practitioners in research, government, and private institutions who work on behavioural data linking, and to animate regular initiatives, workshops, and knowledge-exchange activities.
