Navet in Uppsala

Navet is the national SciLifeLab hub in Uppsala, a place to meet for scientists, facility staff and visitors from within and outside of the academic environment. The innovative architecture is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary meetings and serves as an inspiring atmosphere to promote creativity. The construction of Navet was finalized in 2013 with staff moving in during December 2013.
