RIGHT NOW, you are reading something we have been thinking about for a long time – a magazine that describes the development of life science in Uppsala in an easy-to-digest way, with statistics, perspectives and inspiration.

Getting here required related complementary activities: a camp- fire like Uppsala LIFE where the story can come to life; a database that can also illustrate data with meaningful statistics; an increased focus on analysis; new and renewed relationships with those who want to get involved in system transformation; and connections to other knowledge-focused cities and ecosystems outside Uppsala.

Clusters have come a long way over the past decade, evolving from systems for refinement and economic growth within a particular field or geographical area, into larger systems that go beyond the old limitations. Using their strengths to meet societal challenges and achieve sustainable growth.

At STUNS, we collaborate every day with our founders and friends within the innovation sphere to drive vital issues, create relation- ships within and outside the ecosystem and initiate collaborative plattforms. Thank you for your trust and your commitment to sustainable growth.
