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.

Your business idea
In order to succeed in disseminating research beyond laboratory results and academic merits, researchers need to think along slightly different paths. Within KI Innovation’s START program, we help you with analyzing the possibilities of transforming your research knowledge into useful products or services that can create value outside academia.
Projects that have undergone our START program, as well as other companies within the area of health, care and life science can apply for KI Innovation’s incubator program DRIVE. Within DRIVE, we continue with validation activities, but with an increased focus on business development and scaling.
