Focus areas

Activities are concentrated in three strategic focus areas:

  • Life Science with the open innovation programme BIO-X within Uppsala BIO.
  • Energy with test beds and business platforms for client companies and technology suppliers in STUNS Energy.
  • Innovation and Business with shared premises for innovation-system actors and the region’s business incubator Uppsala Innovation Centre (UIC).


All efforts complement the market, in a broad sense, and are part of the innovation environment for the Uppsala region. Test-bed operations in the focus areas of Energy and Life Science are typical examples of what is bringing added value to the universities, businesses, and the public sector and at the same time is fully integrated with the regional innovation structure.
