A healthier future through innovation!

KI Innovations provides support and guidance so that more research based ideas, discoveries and knowledge from Karolinska Institutet can contribute to a healthier future for all.

At Karolinska Institutet, world-leading research continually improves our understanding of the human body and its diseases. Research results are usually presented in scientific papers, but it is far from given that researchers also take steps towards transforming their ideas into products and services of value to patients and society.

We are here to help in all aspects of transforming an idea into an innovation.
