The Knut Wicksell Centre for Financial Studies (KWC)
The Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN) and the School of Economics and Management at Lund University received a 10-year financial grant from Vinnova in 2011 to build a center for financial studies. The center’s operation is geographically tied to the School of Economics and Management at Lund University. The purpose is to conduct qualified research within financial economics and to encourage a mutually beneficial cooperation with practitioners within the field. More specifically the center’s activities will focus on performing research of high quality, in cooperation with practitioners ensuring that the research being conducted is relevant and creating an attractive research environment in order to reach out to and recruit new researchers – full time, part time or guest researching –both locally and internationally.
