Curiosum is a unit at Umeå University that is funded by Umeå University in collaboration with Umeå Municipality. The Curiosum initiative is made possible by a donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, which through the Wisdome project makes a national investment in scientific visualization.
The science center is led by a manager who is responsible for day-to-day operations, and a steering group responsible for the direction of the business, business plan and budget.
The steering group meets 6–8 times per year and consists of a chairman and members from Umeå University and Umeå municipality as well as student representatives.
