A forum for research in all areas of public economics
The Uppsala Centre for Fiscal Studies was founded within the Department of Economics at Uppsala University autumn 2008. UCFS supports research in all areas of public economics and provides a forum for Swedish and international scholars to interact and conduct research.
The Director of the centre is Mikael Elinder, Professor of Economics at Uppsala University. The centre is organised around a small set of 'core' members and affiliated members. In addition, the centre welcomes visitors to spend shorter or longer periods in Uppsala.
The centre is financed through grants from Jan Wallanders och Tom Hedelius Stiftelse och Tore Browaldhs stiftelse.
