The research of the unit is aimed at the development of models to explain and describe the influences in social systems. Social influences are studied in two ways: from the perspective of group dynamics and from an individual-cognitive perspective. Both themes can't be seen apart from eachother.
From these two perspective the research focuses at:
- the relation between attitudes and behavior
- stress problems and performance within organisations
- distribution of scarce goods in groups and organisations
- motivation, social cognition and perception in relation to group and organisation characteristics
