The Hamrin Foundation (the Carl-Olof and Jenz Hamrin Foundation) was founded in November 1985, when Jenz Hamrin and her daughter Christina donated a third of their shares in Herenco AB.

The Hamrin Foundation promotes scientific research by financially supporting individuals, research groups, institutions and projects. Since our founding, we have disbursed more than EUR 31 million.

The Foundation’s main beneficiary is Jönköping University, which has received just over EUR 19 million from us. A majority of that funding has gone to Jönköping International Business School (JIBS).

From 2023 onwards, we will focus on research areas such as Public Policy and Media.
