The 29-years-and-counting story of Swedish Incubators & Science Parks


SwedePark came to life as an association of Swedish Research and Technology Parks (today Science Parks) in stimulating the flow of technology and knowledge amongst universities, public sector and the industry.

Fast forward 10 years

Spun out of a project known as the Network X, several Incubators came together in forming the Swedish Start-Up Process & Incubator Network, SwedSpin.

The year was 1999 and the mission to support students and researchers in realizing their business ideas.

Merging the two

In empowering SwedSpin and SwedePark while working towards the same goal, bundling was a natural step.

Plans took off in early 2005 when the two unions formed the new compound Swedish Incubators & Science Parks.
