  • Attractive premises with good communications – an optimal research environment for the recruitment of excellent scientists.
  • Increased interaction and collaboration – An environment that encourages and supports creative meetings, without borders
  • Excellent interaction between basic and clinical science and with the university hospital
  • Efficient and flexible use of premises and equipment – Premises that can seamlessly be adapted to changing needs in a dynamic and evolving research context

Neo will give:

  • Coworkers and students, our most important assets, the best possible conditions to work and develop
  • New possibilities for our infrastructure
  • Opportunities for change
  • Optimal conditions for collaboration between and integration of research-groups, across departments and research areas
  • A coherent preclinical and clinical research environment
  • Increased interaction with the health care system in particular Karolinska university hospital, primary care and the municipalities in the close vicinity and education/KTH School of Technology and Health and Röda korsets and Södertörns högskolor.
  • Simpler establishment, operation, and use of core facilities and expensive equipment
  • Increased efficiency and improved service to core activities
  • More efficient use of premises (fewer square meters per person)

The researchers that move into Neo belong to four different departments:
