UN Sustainability Goal 3: Good health and well-being

We perform research on biomedical applications of cellulose. One example is the development of new cellulose-based wound dressings targeting the healing of chronical wounds. We also perform research on developing cellulose-based structures (scaffolds) where stem cells can grow and form new tissue. Hence, our research supports UN sustainability subgoal 3.4:

UN subgoal 3.4: “By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being”

UN subgoal 3.4

Examples of projects at RISE PFI supporting UN sustainability subgoal 3.4 are given below:


3D Printed Engineered Nano-Composite Templates for Bone Regeneration


Oxygenated bioPolymers for biomedical applications
