WWSC - Wallenberg Wood Science Center

Welcome!

Wallenberg Wood Science Center is a research center with a focus on new materials from trees. The mission is to create knowledge and build competence that can form the basis for an innovative future value creation from forest raw material. The base is a donation from Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.  

KAW 100 years!

The funding source for WWSC, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, celebrates 100 years 2017. There are many more sources of funding for research today than 100 years ago, and when the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation was formed in 1917, it was an important addition. Today, the foundation is one of the largest private research-funding sources in Europe.
