Senseable Stockholm Lab

Welcome to Kista! With focus on TOGETHER the Senseable Stockholm Lab Center was officially opened earlier this week.  The aim of the center is to deliver new knowledge on how to bridge the gap between student groups & researchers, business, and municipalities.

People doing things together

The unique ecosystem that is Kista Science City, with a long history of collaborations between tech, academia & research, and the public sector, is strengthened through international researchers via MIT and KTH in the Senseable Stockholm Lab Kista initiative.

The need for lifelong learning, a new generation of citizens – that are more aware, active and wants to make a difference – and the importance of personal meetings. This was some of the takeaways from the official inauguration of the new center.  The importance of the personal meeting to get things done, spark new ideas and to go from creating plans to testing new ideas was lifted by both speakers and panelists.

Senseable Stockholm lab (SSL) is a collaboration between KTH, MIT and the City of Stockholm, with support from Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and Newsec. SSL started in 2019 as MIT and KTH started a research collaboration around urban planning and development – with Stockholm City in focus.

Realizing the future of Kista

The inauguration was part of the two day event “SSL Lab days” that discussed how cutting-edge research can contribute to urban development processes, where decisions are made to create a more inclusive and sustainable urban development. Discussions and presentations on challenges in transport, safety, energy, and segregation.

The SLL-Kista initiative will launch new projects to realize the future Kista, projects connected to data sharing, testbed, the role digitalization has on sustainable urban development.

By bringing together findings of cutting-edge research on cities, IoT and AI, the initiative aims to bridge the gap between research and successful innovation. For academia, for companies and for the city.
