WISE (The Wallenberg Initiative Materials Science for Sustainability) is the largest ever investment in materials science in Sweden and will encompass major efforts at seven of the leading universities in Sweden over the course of 10 years.

Contribute to sustainable social development

The aim of the program is to create the conditions for a sustainable society by researching the next generation of ecofriendly materials and manufacturing processes. Through collaborations with industry and society, WISE will promote and activate a transition towards a sustainable society at the same time advancing the scientific frontier in materials science that firmly establishes Sweden as a leading nation in the field.

By attracting excellent PhD and Postdoctoral researchers (i.e. Postdocs), and the leading experts in the field, the goal is to initiate 90 research projects in Sweden by 2023. The total budget of the WISE program is close to 3 billion SEK during 2022-2033. The aim is to establish a joint PhD and postdoctoral research school in 2023, which will grow to about 150 active participants within two years.
