Globalization and Corporate Restructuring

The Knut Wicksell Center for Financial Studies

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.

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.
