The Groningen Center for Social Complexity Studies (lead by Dr. Wander Jager) is specialised in integrating psychological theory in agent based models. Part of his work addresses the modelling of consumer behaviour, which has cumulated in several publications in high quality journals and two special issues on using ABM in business/marketing. His agent based work addresses also other topics, include prize winning work on opinion dynamics, crowding behaviour, environmental relevant behaviour, modelling organisational processes and investment behaviour.
There is also an upcoming interest in developing serious games based upon social agents.
