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.
