The operation of CeFEO is made possible thanks to resources raised from various institutions, foundations, companies and individuals. The largest benefactor and foundation that made it possible to launch and sustain CeFEO is Carl-Olof and Jenz Hamrin'sFoundation located in Jönköping. This foundation has been very generous in giving financial support to CeFEO..
During the Fall semester 2014, CeFEO has Hamrin Visiting Professors Andrea Calabro (Witten/Herdecke University, Germany) and Charmine Härtel (UQ Business School, Australia) visiting the Centre. Andrea Calabro was our Hamrin Visiting Professor during Fall semester 2013 as well.
Another foundation that is sponsoring CeFEO is the Henry and Sylvia Toft Foundation. With their funding CeFEO was given the opportunity to start a program called 'Toft's Visiting Professorship'. This program aims at getting internationally leading scholars to apply for visiting CeFEO for long or short visiting periods. The Toft visiting professor program ended in December, 2014.
