Mission Statement

Main content start

The mission of the Wallenberg Research Link (WRL) is to enable Sweden as a knowledge society to establish collaborations with forefront research at Stanford University.  The WRL leadership participates in the selection of Swedish post-doctoral fellows funded by various Wallenberg Foundations and provides some administrative support for their stay at Stanford University.  The WRL also supports Swedish students and researchers in continuing their contact with Stanford University.

The WRL is funded by a gift from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation to Stanford University. Professor emeritus Arthur Bienenstock serves as its director and Laurie Richard as its administrator. Initial contact with the WRL should be made through Laurie Richard [+1 (650) 724-6483,].  Alternate administrative contact is Elaine Minderler [+1 (650) 498-4819,].
