KEFU was founded in August of 1984. Founders, sponsors and members are Lund University, Region Skåne (i.e. the County Council) and the local governments of Skåne.

The objective of the organisation is to function as an arena for cooperation between the members. Moreover, within the fields of business administration, economics and political science, KEFU initiates and supports education that is applicable and related to the work of the local governments and Region Skåne.

Research and development

In cooperation with Lund University School of Management and Economics, KEFU is initiating and supporting research and development programmes within the field of local government management, economics and politics.

In addition to traditional research, KEFU is seeking to implement projects in cooperation with the districts and the Skåne Region. In these projects, researchers connected to KEFU function as a forum for the study, analysis and discussion of issues relevant to practitioners.
