  • Risks, Preferences, and Behaviors

The LAMETA was created in 1997 as an associated unit to CNRS, then, in 1999, as a joint unit between Montpellier University and CNRS. Since January 2001, it associates INRA and Montpellier SupAgro.

The LAMETA currently brings together 42 academics and researchers (24 UM, 4 CNRS, 8 INRA, 2 SupAgro, 2 UPVM), 11 engineers, technicians and administrative staff, and some fifty PhD students and postdocs, totaling a hundred people, located on two places: the site "Richter", south of Montpellier in the building of the economics department of the University of Montpellier, and the site "Agro", north of the city, in building 26 on the SupAgro-INRA campus.
