CERE's Lars Fredrik Andersson, Associate Professor in Economic History, was interviewed by TV4 in conjunction with Volvo's announcement of their move of the assembly line to Gothenburg.

The importance of intellectual flow has been stressed since the start of CERE nearly four years ago . Visitors to CERE and CERE researchers visits to other research centers has frequently been reported in our newsletters and the flow of people strengthens research.
