Not boring Kista

Urban and not boring

Kista is home to one of the leading ICT clusters in the world thanks to early triple helix collaboration plans, with academia, industry and the public sector joining forces in Kista and founding the Electrum Foundation. Together they invested in innovation, research and development in ICT technology.

The Electrum Foundation observed a structural transformation taking place in urban environments due to digitalization and realized that this creates new requirements for collaboration, innovation and development. This led to the creation of Urban ICT Arena, where Sweden will be futureproofed and Kista’s ICT cluster will grow stronger than ever with the help of several Not Boring Projects in an urban environment.
