Birthplace of the Swedish IT wonder
Kista has been home to one of the leading ICT clusters in the world since it introduced triple helix collaboration some years back, allowing academia, industry and the public sector to join forces here. Kista is a unique example of successful cross-disciplinary urban planning, and is today teeming with creative and competent actors in many growing start-ups and SMEs that are developing innovative products and services. Several large, international companies in the IT and telecom sectors have chosen to place their headquarters and regional offices here, for example Ericsson and IBM.
At Stockholm Discovery, we are passionate about spreading knowledge about successful and sustainable innovations and we would like to serve as inspiration for the construction of responsible and inclusive urban environments. Since 2015, we have been an exclusive partner of Kista Science City entrusted with the task of arranging all their professional visits. In this way, we offer a unique opportunity to invite guest speakers with the expertise to match your specific interests. Our services include seminars, inspirational lectures, in-depth workshops and guided tours.
We look forward to welcoming you to Kista Science City!
