A great part of the life sciences industry in Sweden is located within a one hours’ drive from the new university hospital.
In addition, five universities are located in this area: Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University, The Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm School of Economics and the Uppsala University. All of them have education and research relating to Life Sciences.
Hagastaden - A new project of urban development
Hagastaden is a new area under development on the border between the cities of Stockholm and Solna. The area includes the world leading education and research institutions Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital.
Over the next 15 years, several players will create the world's leading area for life science under the joint brand, Stockholm Life. Hagastaden will be an attractive place to live, work and study for people of all ages. The area will include dwellings, a new university hospital and new facilities for research and education at Karolinska Institutet. There will also be new green areas, a commercial centre and cultural initiatives.
When Hagastaden is completed in 2025, the area will comprise 5,000 new dwellings and about 50 000 work spaces (including the area between Norra Stationsgatan and Vanadisvägen). A total of SEK 65 billion is being invested in Hagastaden, to create a world class science city, where healthcare, research and innovation are developed in close cooperation.
The City of Stockholm, the City of Solna, New Karolinska Solna, Karolinska Institutet, Akademiska Hus, Locum, The Swedish Transport Administration and Stockholm Science City Foundation and a number of private property developers are working to develop Hagastaden.
