S3 Strategy

The Stockholm region has identified four prioritised areas: (1) life science, health, and care (2) information, communication technology (ICT) tech and digitalisation, (3) industrial change through sustainable production and (4) climate and environmental initiatives for sustainable urban development. The Stockholm region has outlined a strategy that is the guiding basis for dialogue and collaboration between the public and private sectors, academia and non-profit actors at municipal, regional and state level. The Stockholm Region EU office is also closely collaborating with the Stockholm Trio, a partnership between Karolinska Institute, the Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. This means new opportunities to strengthen the region’s position in research and innovation.

Strategic R&I Projects

GrowSmarter (part of Stockholm Green Innovation District)

GrowSmarter stimulated city uptake of smart solutions by using the three lighthouse cities (Stockholm, Cologne and Barcelona) as a way to showcase 12 Smart City solutions: from advanced information and communication technology and better connected urban mobility, to incorporating renewable energy sources directly into the city’s supply network.

The Stockholm Life Tech project

Started in 2020, the project aims to increase growth in life science SMEs in Flemingsberg and Hagastaden, two strong life science environments in Stockholm.


The project aims to integrate a regional and sub-regional element into Smart Specialisation Strategies, to strengthen the region’s competitiveness by identifying areas with growth potential.

REBECCA (REsearch on BrEast Cancer induced chronic conditions supported by Causal Analysis of multi-source data)

REBECCA brings together 12 partners from 7 European countries. The project aims to tap into the potential of real-world data to support clinical research and to improve existing clinical workflows.
