Thomas Brandmayr and Roman Okruch are working on their master theses within a joint research project with colleagues from the University of Vienna, University of Hohenheim and Tilburg University.
They focus in their research on the interaction between electronic support of negotiations and mediation. Negotiations (ranging from simple everyday to long-lasting business negotiations) represent social interactions including complex communication patterns. Analyses of negotiation dyads’ communication are used to create insights in the black-box of decision-making processes. These in-depth analyzes are necessary to evaluate the influence on economic, normative and social outcome dimensions.
