A healthier future through innovation!
We at KI Innovations are here to provide support and guidance so that more of the fantastic ideas from Karolinska Institutet can contribute to a healthier future for us all
At the Karolinska Institute, world-leading research continually improves our understanding of the human body and its diseases. We take for granted that research will result in scientific papers but it’s far from given that scientists will also take steps to transform their ideas into products and services of value to society.
We help in all aspects of developing a commercial product from research results.
Just curious about innovation?
Are you excited by a new research discovery and maybe on the trail of a brand-new product or treatment that solves a significant problem? Are you wondering what to do next? Then you’ve come to the right place! Keep reading to find out how we can help you.
Your business idea
To succeed with a commercial project, a scientist needs to think in terms quite different from laboratory results and academic merits. Within KI Innovation’s so-called START program, we get started in helping you analyze the possibilities for transforming your discovery into a product or service.
Projects that have undergone our START program can apply for KI Innovation’s incubator business, DRIVE. Within DRIVE, we continue with verifying activities, but with an increased focus on business development.
