Founders and funders

Flemingsberg Science Foundation was established in 2011 to promote collaboration between academia, business and society in Flemingsberg. The foundation is backed by the following bodies:

Botkyrka municipality

Around 93,000 people live in Botkyrka – a number that is steadily increasing. If current trends continue, the municipality’s population will reach 100,000 in 2024. Some 100 different languages are spoken in the municipality and the population has a low average age.

Huddinge municipality

Huddinge is the second largest municipality in the Stockholm region, with an unrivalled location where nature and recreational spaces combine with all the services you’d expect from a major urban area. Huddinge is home to Flemingsberg and its universities, as well as Sweden’s largest shopping centre, Kungens Kurva. Huddinge municipality is diverse, considerate and resolutely forward-looking. Together, we’re creating a sustainable future for all who live and work here.

Karolinska Institutet

Karolinska Institutet is one of the world’s leading medical universities. Our vision is to make decisive contributions to the betterment of human health. Our mission is to conduct research and teaching and to collaborate with the surrounding community. In Sweden, KI accounts for the single largest share of medical academic research and has the largest choice of medical training courses. Since 1901, the Nobel Committee has announced the winners of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine at Karolinska Institutet.

Red Cross University College

The Red Cross University College was founded in 1867 by pioneering Swedish nurse Emmy Rappe, and was the first non-religious nurse training available in Sweden. Since then, we have trained and equipped nurses for a broad spectrum of roles that have contributed to the development of the nursing profession in Sweden. The College has an inclusive atmosphere where students are represented in working groups that influence the curriculum. Today, around 80 people work at the College, and we have approximately 850 students.

Region Stockholm

All day, every day Region Stockholm is responsible for healthcare, public transport, and the development of Stockholm county. Region Stockholm is also tasked with contributing to the cultural life of the county. With some 45,000 employees, it is one of Sweden’s largest employers. Radiology nurses, community planners, engineers, cultural strategists and orthopaedists are just some of the hundreds of professions employed by Region Stockholm.

Royal Institute of Technology

Sweden’s largest engineering university. Since it was founded in 1827, KTH has become one of Europe’s leading engineering universities and an important forum for knowledge growth. As Sweden’s leading university for engineering research and training, we attract students, researchers and faculties from all over the world.
