The IIES research environment

The IIES is a research institute at Stockholm University, founded 1 July 1962. The main objective is to produce outstanding research for publication in leading international journals. A large number of visitors come to the IIES every year to present new findings, cooperate with the Institute’s researchers, and conduct their own research. Since the mid 1990s, all recruitment of younger researchers takes place in the yearly international market for new Ph.D. economists. At the other side of this market, young researchers with a recent Ph.D. thesis written at the IIES have received job offers from many internationally renowned universities. All researchers at the IIES teach in the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in Economics at the University.


The IIES seminars usually take place on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm and Thursdays at 3:00 pm in room A822, unless otherwise stated.
