About us

The Centre for Excellence for Science and Innovation Studies (CESIS) was founded in 2004 by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in collaboration with Jonkoping University with the objective to be recognized as an important focal point in the international research community focusing on micro-foundations for innovation and growth.

The innovative use of methods and techniques to develop and analyse extensive high quality data has proven successful and has led to a high international visibility. Since its inception, CESIS has managed to establish itself among the top 5% research institutions world-wide in eight of the about 80 research areas ranked by IDEAS, the world’s largest bibliographic open access database for economics and finance research.
