Carl Fredrik Bergström is Professor of European Law at Uppsala University (2010-). He has a background as researcher at the European University Institute in Florence (1995-2002), lecturer at Stockholm University (1996-2006) and Head of Research, later Director, at SIEPS, the Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies (2002-2009). Carl Fredrik Bergström is responsible for a research collaboration between Uppsala University and the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies at EUI (2017-).


Carl Fredrik Bergström has his main field of expertise in the law of the European Union, with a focus on inter-relationship to national constitutional law, fundamental principles and system of norms, regulatory behaviour and legal method. His current research concerns, primarily, 1) new patterns of regulatory behaviour within the EU financial market - increasing use of 'regulations' (rather than 'directives') and extensive delegation of regulatory powers to the Commission and/or agencis - and 2) the way in which the Swedish principle of open government (citizens' right to access to official documents) is affected by the EU.
