Furthermore, a large share of this research is conducted in collaboration with the Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy (IFAU). The research undertaken in the field of public economics takes place within the framework of Uppsala Center for Fiscal Studies (UCFS). We also cooperate with the Institute for Housing and Urban Research (IBF) and the Health Economic Forum at Uppsala University (HEFUU).
