The Centre for Retailing is part of the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. The CFR is a platform for researchers who, irrespective of their organisational affiliation and scientific discipline, are performing research that is of interest and relevance to retailing.
The CFR has a reference group comprising representatives of the School of Business, Economics and Law and representatives of retailing. This reference group has an advisory function and holds particular responsibility for ensuring contact between the CFR and retail. The reference group is currently made up of nine people; three representatives of the School of Business, Economics and Law, two retailing representatives, two from Handelns forskningsstiftelse and two from unions.
