Campus development

Flemingsberg Science works closely with Region Stockholm, universities, student unions, municipalities, business and property stakeholders for the development of an attractive campus environment in Flemingsberg.

From development programme to shared vision
Flemingsberg has been identified as a key district in the regional development plan for Stockholm, RUFS 2050. This involves investment in sustainable, urban settings where businesses choose to locate, and environments characterized by multi-purpose buildings, a variety of housing types and bold architectural styles. Flemingsberg is also being developed in ways that capitalize on its excellent public transport access.
The development programme for Flemingsberg incorporates the following goals for Campus Flemingsberg:


A thriving and multi-disciplinary campus with a rich diversity of teaching and world-class research. Flemingsberg is known for its university area, a campus with a multi-disciplinary higher education offering and as a research hub. Here you’ll find a cohesive university area offering a highly desirable environment for students, researchers and tutors. A unique collaboration between different academic institutions exists in Campus Flemingsberg. It is a campus that encourages diversity as a driver for activity and quality. A university district that tackles societal challenges of the future by applying new inter-disciplinary innovations and world-leading research.
Measurable interim targets 2030:
  • 15,000 more students attending existing and new universities
  • Double the number of research centres that collaborate with the various academic institutions

Measuring Flemingsberg’s development as a university district in terms of its unique inter-disciplinary collaboration.
