Welcome to tomorrow.

Located in Kista Science City, one of the world’s leading ICT-clusters, we are an arena for creating, testing and showing the solutions for tomorrow’s sustainable cities.



We facilitate tests and projects in an actual urban environment. With the help our partners we provide testbeds with a wide array of digital infrastructure available for your applications and devices.



We like to spread the word about the innovative companies we are working with. Kista Science City is a showroom for smart city solutions. Each year, hundreds of delegates come here from all over the world to experience it first-hand.



Collaboration is how we make it happen. We bring together academia, public sector and business to create smart solutions for tomorrow’s cities. Today.
