Materials science for a sustainable world

WISE – Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability –  a research program at 7 universities with the aim to create the conditions for a sustainable society by researching next generation of ecofriendly materials and manufacturing processes.

 

WISE – Materials science for a sustainable world.

To achieve our climate and environmental goals, we need to reduce our environmental and climate footprints from the materials we use in our day-to-day lives and in industry. 

The aim of the Wallenberg Initiative Material Science for Sustainability is to create the conditions for a sustainable society by researching next generation of ecofriendly materials and manufacturing processes. This will also facilitate better technology for energy systems of the future, and to combat pollution and toxic emissions. 

WISE is a 270 million Euro research investment by Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
