Welcome to forskaren.nu – where the vision for Forskaren will come to life
Today, we are delighted to be launching Forskaren.nu – a new website dedicated to the Forskaren project. Our new building will grow in the heart of Hagastaden, Stockholm, and become a vibrant innovation center for the life sciences community.
The new website carries our vision for Forskaren, and is intended to facilitate and guide future design decisions and to help us collaborate with partners and stakeholders ahead of the building's completion in 2024. Forskaren.nu will also be a platform where stakeholders can continuously follow the development of the project going forward and find details of upcoming events.
“Now is the time to share the vision of Forskaren with the world. Today, we have exciting dialogues with a handful of actors who have shown strong interest in becoming part of Forskaren. Here we create the natural meeting place for science, academia and business", says Micael Averborg, Business Development Manager at Vectura Fastigheter.
Forskaren is an innovation partner for ambitious businesses who want to challenge and contribute new ideas for life and health. We achieve this by acting long-term, activating knowledge exchange and stimulating curiosity. Hagastaden is one of Stockholm's largest and most important urban development projects, and we want the Forskaren building to become a place where collaboration can thrive.
At the moment, parallel architecture assignments are underway to design Forskaren, and the participating architects are: Dinell Johansson, 3XN, Tengbom and White Architects. After the selection of the winning proposal at the turn of the year, Forsken.nu will be the first place to visit to see visualizations from the winning grant.

In 2024, the Forskaren building and the majority of what has been called Stockholm’s ‘Science City’ will be completed. It will be a hub for world-leading research and highly-specialized medical care, with 50% of the region's life sciences community located within a 5km radius. When the Forskaren building opens for business, Hagastaden is expected to become a vibrant new district with over 6,000 new homes, 50,000 jobs, a new metro station, green areas and cultural attractions.
