The majority of our infrastructure services can be found in Stockholm and Uppsala, and this is also where SciLifeLab has created our two largest research community loci (see below). In addition, there are service units and affiliated research groups present at several major Swedish universities. However, the scope of SciLifeLab extends beyond these locations, as our Research Community Programs are open to collaborators from all parts of the country.
Chalmers University of Technology, (Chalmers), Gothenburg University (GU), Karolinska Institutet (KI), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Linköping University (LiU), Lund University (LU), Stockholm University (SU) and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
Campus Solna in Stockholm
Our Campus Solna site is mainly located in the buildings Alfa and Gamma, situated at Karolinska Institutet’s campus in Solna, just outside Stockholm city. Together, they comprise 15 000 square meters of laboratory and office space for about 600 researchers, staff scientists and other personnel from three of our four host universities. Bringing people together across traditional university, faculty and department boundaries, Campus Solna creates many opportunities for networking and initiating joint projects.
Navet in Uppsala
Navet is the hub of our operations in Uppsala. Unlike Campus Solna, SciLifeLab in Uppsala is physically distributed at five campus areas across the city. Navet was build as a place to interact for scientists, facility staff and visitors from within and outside of the SciLifeLab environment. It hosts 3 000 square meters of meeting rooms, guestrooms and offices, as well as houses part of the Operations Office, with an additional 8 000 square meters of laboratories in the surrounding area. The innovative architecture is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary meetings and serves as an inspiring atmosphere to promote creativity.
