The LMK Foundation
The Pufendorf IAS receives important support from the LMK Foundation. LMK are the initials of the entrepreneur Lars Mikael Karlsson. He was one of the founders of Axis AB and, shortly before he passed away in September 2005, he expressed his desire to stimulate academic research – in particular multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research and primarily at Lund University. The foundation’s goal is to fulfil his wishes to the greatest extent possible.
Since 2009, the foundation has contributed a grant that has made it possible to employ several international visiting research fellows. In cooperation with the Pufendorf IAS, the foundation also supports the University’s interdisciplinary work through organising the annual Björkliden Forum. This is done in cooperation with Sture Forsén, the Institute’s Senior Scientific Advisor.
