The collaboration between ICA and SSE has intensified over the years and has resulted in numerous student theses, research projects and PhD dissertations. The launch of SSE’s Center for Retailing created even more opportunities for good collaboration. ICA also has partnerships with other universities in Sweden where research projects have resulted in important publications.
