Jesper Falkheimer

I combine work in university management with research in strategic communication since several years ago. I received my Ph.D. in Media and Communication Studies in 2004 at Lund University, was appointed associate professor (docent) in 2008 and became the first professor in Strategic Communication in Sweden in 2012. Before my academic career I worked in the advertising and public relations industry in Sweden. Until some years ago I regularly wrote chronicles and columns about media and communication issues in different newspapers and magazines in Sweden.

My research interests are strategic communication in general, and more specific, crisis communication, public relations, communication management, terrorism and place branding. My research is a structured around a core interest in the persuasive communication processes between organizations and its stakeholders, in a social theoretical framework.

Since 2008 I have combined research with university management positions and since 2017 I am Head for Division for Research, Collaboration and Innovation at Lund University, after six years as Rector for Campus Helsingborg, and two assignments as head of department at Lund University and Malmö University. The current managerial position includes overall responsibility for four central administrative departments at my university: LU Innovation (with LU Holding AB), Research Services, Collaboration and Fundraising. My division also has responsibility for Lund University Foundation (a fundraising foundation in the USA) and an EU lobbying office in Bruxelles under the network Lärosäten Syd.

I am Editor-in-Chief for Journal of Communication Management, one of the leading research journals in our field, Honorary Fellow at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Swedish representative for European Communication Monitor. I have been a national and international professional speaker and advisor on communication issues for two decades and have several positions as executive board member, e.g. at University College of Halmstad, Media Evolution, Öresundsinstitutet, Executive Foundation Lund (EFL) and Gullers Grupp AB.

I have been project lead and researcher in several projects during the years. Currently I am a part of a research project about salafism and propaganda, led by CATS at the National Defence College. My recent publications include a fundamental text book (with Mats Heide), Strategic Communication: an Introduction (Routledge 2018), a popular management book (with Katarina Gentzel Sandberg), Nu: strategisk improvisation för effektiv kommunikation (Roos & Tegner 2017).  I am also co-editor (main editors Robert Heath and Winni Johanssen) for International Encyklopedia of Strategic Communication (Wiley 2018).
