The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation is the largest private financier of research in Sweden. The Chairman of Stockholms Enskilda Bank, K. A. Wallenberg, and his wife Alice, founded the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in 1917 with an initial endowment of 20 million Swedish crowns. They continued to develop the Foundation over the next three decades. The purpose of the Foundation is to promote scientific research, teaching and education beneficial to the Kingdom of Sweden. The Foundation primarily grants funding in natural sciences, technology, and medicine. Projects in other disciplines may receive support on the condition that they are related to research questions of relevance to natural sciences, technology, and medicine.
