The Cell – life science in Hagastaden

The National Museum of Science and Technology is much more than just a museum; it is also an arena for science, innovation and enterprise that next year will be celebrating its 100th anniversary. From the very start in 1924, we have looked to the future and shown how an inquisitive nature, creativity and boundary-transcending collaboration can help us to resolve many of the seemingly impossible challenges that we face. Now, just as 100 years ago, we find ourselves in a period of great upheaval with major challenges. It is our ambition to inspire people to become engaged not only in their own, but also in our, shared future. 

About The Cell 

On the ground floor of Forskaren, the National Museum of Science and Technology, in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet, plans to offer exhibitions, laboratories, and encounters with prominent figures in the field of life science. On weekdays, this place will serve as a resource for students and teachers, while on weekends and evenings, it can host everything from intriguing conversations to creative music and art experiences related to the subject. The goal is to spark more interest and a desire to learn, encouraging more young people to pursue a career in life science, especially those from underrepresented groups in education.

This is not just a window to peer through , it is also an open door, where you will be invited in to explore, discover and participate in the development of the life science of tomorrow.

For nearly 100 years, the National Museum of Science and Technology has been working to make the complex a little easier to understand by providing new perspectives and creating engaging experiences related to natural science.

The Cell will open at Hagaplan on April 20, 2024.

About forskaren

Forskaren is located in the heart of one of the world’s premier areas for life science – Hagastaden. This inner-city district lies at the junction of Stockholm and Solna. Within a five-kilometer radius, you’ll find half of the region’s life science companies and leading university hospitals. It’s also where Karolinska Institutet conducts world-class education and research.

At Hagaplan, Forskaren invites professionals with offices, laboratories, and co-working spaces, as well as a curious general public through institutions like the National Museum of Science and Technology and Urban Deli’s establishment on the ground floor. Forskaren is an investment by Vectura Properties.
