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 will 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.

This is what we do

Just curious about innovation?

Have you made an exciting research discovery? Or are you on the trail of developing a brand-new product, treatment or method that solves a significant problem? Are you wondering what to do next? Then you have found the right place! Keep reading to find out how we can help you.
