Swedish Network for European Studies in Economics and Business

The Swedish Network for European Studies in Economics and Business (SNEE) is commissioned by the Swedish government, and run by Lund University through the School of Economics and Management.

Our goal is to gather researchers at Swedish universities who work with European research from an economic perspective. To achieve this, we arrange annual research conferences on European integration that bring together both Swedish and foreign researchers, with the aim of promoting strong research, and help stakeholders in e.g. the world of government and business understand how the research front in the field is developing.
