The Malmsten Foundation


The Richard C. Malmsten Memorial Foundation

Richard C. Malmsten, 1851 - 1901

For many years, this foundation has played an important part in the life of the School. Through an extreamely generous donation, the Foundation contributed to the realisation of the plans for a new School in 1995.

Since 1984, the Foundation has supported the School every year with large grants for both research and education. The Graduate Business School has, for example, been run with money from the Foundation since the very start in 1997.

In 1887, Richard C. Malmsten and Gustaf Bergvall founded the wholesale trade and agency company Malmsten & Bergvall in Göteborg. Companies that subsequently developed included Apotekarnes Droghandlesaktiebolag (ADA) and the pharmaceutical company Pharmacia. The Foundation was set up in 1983, following a donation by the wholesaler Erik Malmsten, the grandson of Richard C. Malmsten. Its mail aim was to promote scientific, economic research and education at Göteborg University.
