Region Stockholm plays an important role in terms of research within the region, both through significant financial investment and through interdisciplinary research, which is carried out together with the universities within the county.
Region Stockholm and research collaboration
Region Stockholm is involved in several cases of research collaboration, including at Karolinska Institutet (KI), the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm University (SU) and Södertörn University (SH). At Stockholm's university hospital, Karolinska University Hospital in Solna and Huddinge, Region Stockholm is responsible for care, while the state is responsible for medical education through Karolinska Institutet.
Stockholm Science City
