Wallenberg Foundations Grants 2018
Funding allocated to research totaled SEK 2.2 billion in 2018. Most of the funding by the foundations is in the form of grants awarded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, which focuses on basic research in the fields of medicine, science and technology. But the Wallenberg Foundations also award substantial grants in other fields, including social sciences, humanities, education and archaeology.
The Wallenberg Ecosystem - support for excellence in science and developing industry-leading businesses
More than one hundred years ago the final pillar, the Wallenberg Foundations, was created to form the unique vision recognized today as “the Wallenberg Ecosystem”. This ecosystem enables the Foundations to distribute approximately SEK 2.2 billion annually for basic research and education in Sweden, and also to reinvest in existing or new companies.
