|Virtual Networks A "Virtual Network" is a group of Think Tanks identified by certain semantic and normative (ideological) commonalities (e.g. climate change scepticism). Such a virtual network constitutes a research field that differs from the study of formal networks. Formal networks are real in the sense of officially acknowledged and immediately open to empirical validation. Virtual networks on the other hand display shared ideas. Social network analysis tools can be applied to find out if or to what extent virtual networks are real networks that display linkages (membership in networks, personnel, resources etc.). Unconnected think tanks in turn can be considered special cases in need of explanation independent from network structures (unless we have to assume invisible, hidden or covered ties).||Behavioural economics in public governance|

While the section above shows Think Tanks the Behavioral Science and Policy Association claims to cooperate with, the list below shows Think Tanks that claim to cooperate with the Behavioral Science and Policy Association.
We used the DGs of the EU to generate a basic list of topics. This list is going to be steadily extended. However we try to preserve a persistent list of topics.
This section is used to note presumptions that need further investigation, as well as things that don't fit into other sections.
We assume the year in which it gots its tax exempt status as founding year.
