Uppsala Life science community

The region of Uppsala (Sweden) is the intermediate region with the highest overall position – sixth place– just ahead of one of the urban regions. The presence of a large university and life science sector helps to explain why Uppsala has the highest proportion of people with tertiary education and the highest level of R&D investment per capita of the intermediate regions. The region also benefits from the proximity of the capital region of Stockholm and Arlanda Airport, which contributes to Uppsala’s high net migration rate.
