Collaborations in MegaMind

Many thanks to all of those people who have made MegaMind possible – from financing to collaborations and co-creation.

Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation

Namnet i svart snirklig stil på vit bakgrund

Sweden’s future competitiveness is dependent on our young people developing a greater interest in science and technology. Through its activities, the National Museum of Science and Technology works to foster the interest of children and young people in these areas in playful and inclusive ways. With their donation, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation has been the principal financier of MegaMind.

Stora Fonden

Stora Fonden i orange och rött

Stora Fonden is a fund that was established in 1991 with contributions from trade and industry, organisations and individuals, and with the purpose of promoting the activities of the National Museum of Science and Technology. Through its support, the fund actively contributes to inspiring interest in science and technology among children and young people.

The Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers

Färgglad logga

Sweden’s prosperity has been built on technological advances, which have given rise to some of the world’s leading corporations. In order to retain and develop this position, it is essential that more young people develop an interest in science and technology. And in this, a science centre has an important role to play. The Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers have contributed a large donation to MegaMind.

The Swedish State Inheritance Fund

Namnet bildar cirkel, gröna figurer i mitten

Without people who were faced with problems and hatched ideas, we would not have mobile phones, Minecraft or microscopes. MegaMind shows not only how ideas are generated but also how you can train your brain to become even more creative. Through its donation, the Swedish State Inheritance Fund has contributed to the production of a new science centre exhibition in Stockholm – for all.

Sweden’s Post and Telecom Authority

PTS i svart med en kungakrona över.

Through its Innovation competition, each year the Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) awards funds to innovative IT projects that give people with different kinds of functional impairments the opportunity to participate in the community on the same terms as everyone else. In MegaMind, the PTS has financed the installation Music with your whole body and an information system for all.

Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation

Namnet i svart på vit bakgrund, blå-gula fält

Supports projects in the fields of research, culture and higher education and, through its donation ,has helped make MegaMind a reality.

Innovativ Kultur – a resource centre for art and cultural projects

Namnet i grått med symbol

Innovativ Kultur is an initiative of the City of Stockholm to promote and stimulate innovation in culture and collaborations between the cultural sphere, enterprise and research. Innovativ Kultur promotes innovative art and cultural projects and exploratory experiments and ideas, and has financed the installation Mould in thin air in MegaMind.
