Research at FEI

At FEI we aim to stimulate business research and development by supporting scholars and research teams.  We do so via the FEI Research Institute and several other foundations, including The Oskar Sillén Prize.

The Oskar Sillén Prize for the best PhD

The Prize is awarded by FEI, on an annual basis, for the best doctoral thesis in Sweden on business administration. The Prize was established in 2004 in honour of Oskar Sillén, the first professor of Business Administration in Sweden and the Chairman of the Board at FEI from 1917-1920.

The Oscar Sillén Prize 2021 was awarded to:

FEI Research Institute

FEI Research Institute is a newly established foundation (registered with the Stockholm Administrative County Board and governed by the Foundation Act SFS 1994:1220). It was set up to provide research funding for scholars at universities in Sweden and abroad. The statutes stipulate that proposals for research funding should be in subject areas where FEI offers courses, eg. management, accounting, marketing or real estate. The Board of the FEI Research Institute accept applications on an ongoing basis. Please contact FEI for more details.

The Foundation for Business Administration and the Environment

The Foundation for Business Administration and the Environment provides funding for research projects combining these important areas. The Foundation supports, among other projects, best practice in environmental accounting reporting and research in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The CF Liljevalch Scholarship Foundation

The CF Liljevalch Scholarship Foundation was established in 1913 by a generous donation from the industrialist and philanthropist CF Liljevalch Junior. The Foundation offers grants for students and members of FEI who wish to study or carry our research projects abroad. Many students enrolled in FEI’s courses run in association with US or UK university partners have benefited from the Liljevalch Foundation’s support.
