The Economics of Entrepreneurship

The crucial importance of entrepreneurship for growth and the development of welfare is increasingly emphasized in economic research and the political debate. For this reason, IFN has initiated a research program where research within this area can be collected.

The program aims to increase the understanding of how the basic economic conditions, forms of corporate ownership and general institutions affect entrepreneurial growth.

International cooperation

Visiting researchers

Collaborating with others is essential for IFN as a research institute. Our researchers co-author articles with colleagues from other institutes, and many also teach at various universities and colleges.

As part of our extensive program of guest researchers, leading international researchers visit the institute. The visitors present and pursue their research as well as interact and cooperate with researchers at IFN.
