Pilot test about how to elicit the WTP for the research activity at CERN LHC

June 2014, 

CSIL experts prepared a note that includes results from a pilot test about the implementation of an experiment to elicit the WTP for the research activity at CERN LHC. The experiment was carried out by involving 61 undergraduate students in European economic studies at the University of Milan on June 4, 2014. Following a presentation by the instructor about the objective of the experiment, students have been asked to fill in a questionnaire including 28 questions. The questionnaire was prepared according, as much as possible, to the guidelines of the NOAA panel . The instructor was available in the room to assist and check the development of the experiment. Total time allocated to answer the questionnaire was half an hour.
