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.

Learn how it all started, how it allows for excellent researchers from all over the world to pursue breakthrough research at Swedish universities and how it all connects.
