Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation

The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation has for decades played an important role for funding of cutting-edge equipment, including a large enabling grant when the Lund Nano Lab was built.

Today, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation grants funding in the following areas: research projects of high scientific potential, infrastructure of national importance and individual support of excellent scientists.

NanoLund involved researchers have received the following grants (read more on the foundations homepage):
