Join Kista

Kista Science City is a dynamic ecosystem generated through a collaboration between the public sector, business and academia.

Kista is a creative melting pot where companies, researchers, and students collaborate in order to develop and grow. The high presence of ICT companies, combined with a large number of research institutions, two universities and a high level of engagement from The City of Stockholm, results in a unique platform for collaboration within the framework of the triple helix model. This model of cooperation, often referred to as “the Kista model”, has been in operation for 30 years and plays a crucial role in Kista Science City’s identity and traditions.
