A strong centre for academic knowledge, industry and healthcare

Forskaren will be situated right in the heart of Hagastaden, one of Stockholm's largest and most important urban development projects. By 2024, the area will be well on its way to becoming an entirely new part of the city, mixing apartments and workplaces with cultural attractions, green spaces, world-leading research and highly specialised medical care.

I believe and hope, that Forskaren can help people, ordinary people, to open their eyes to the body. How amazing it is and how we can best take care of our body and health purely physically, but also mentally.
