Research – Department of Economic history

The overarching research strategy of the Department is to be open and inclusive, and it is anchored in three key concepts: relevance, internationalisation, and building research infrastructure. You can find general information about our research on the department’s open webpage – Our research.


Applying for funding
When applying for funding, please contact Anneli Nilsson Ahlm to ensure that you get the project budget right.

The head of department must approve all applications and agreements regardless of the amount that explicitly concern the activities of the department. They sign all grant agreements of less than SEK 8 million. The dean of faculty signs all grant agreements that cover multiple departments within the faculty. The vice-chancellor signs all grant agreements that cover multiple departments at more than one faculty and grant agreements of SEK 8 million and above.[EH1] 

If you have questions about funders and applications, you can contact LU Research Service which provides specialist support in research funding and career advice for researchers.
