Introduction

Karolinska Institutet is growing A changing campus, combined with Strategy 2018, will help Karolinska Institutet realise its full potential. In the campus environments that are evolving in Solna and Huddinge, the foundations are being laid of what will eventually enable us to achieve the overriding objectives of Strategy 2018. Now, our core activities of education and research are to be merged as never before, and a university is created that is more able to work together with its community to ensure that discoveries lead to innovations and are quickly put into effect. Tomorrow’s campus will give staff and students – the university’s single most important asset – the best conditions imaginable in which to work and develop. We are creating inviting environments with the aim of attracting the best minds in a globally competitive market. By developing our campuses, we are building the infrastructure for the future KI – an infrastructure that will enable us to recruit the people we want and to conduct research and education of world-leading standard. KI’s future environments will be platforms for large-scale, cross-boundary research.

A changing campus will furnish Karolinska Institutet with new arenas for research, education and collaboration that will help us realise our vision of making a significant contribution to the improvement of human health.

Overview of Campus Solna

Campus Solna is constructing for the research and education of the future The largest construction project currently underway at Campus Solna is the Biomedicum research lab, which is expected to be completed in 2018. On the other side of Solnavägen, another new research building is being erected as part of the project New Karolinska Solna.

In recent years, a number of new buildings have been completed along Solnavägen: the Alfa, Beta and Gamma houses, which together constitute Karolinska Institutet Science Park, the Widerström Building and Aula Medica. As the campus continues to expand along Solnavägen, it is rapidly changing. Next to Aula Medica, construction is underway on Karolinska Institutet’s new building for experimental research, Biomedicum, which is intended to be inaugurated in 2018. Biomedicum will be linked to the new research building of Karolinska University Hospital through a walkway across Solnavägen. To make it easier to move between campus and the university hospital, a pedestrian path called Akademiska stråket will be built, which will also be extended by a bridge over Solnavägen. 400 new accommodations are also being planned for students and visiting researchers on Campus Solna. If the detailed development plan is approved, and the project proceeds according to plan, these may be completed in 2016–2017.

The inner parts of the campus area retain their character, i.e. mainly low brick buildings surrounded by green areas. At Campus Solna, as well as Campus Huddinge, a major investment project is underway, with the name Future Learning Environments. This project relates to both informal and formal environments, and adheres to a concept where the physical design of the premises is based on the latest educational research. Along with the changes taking place at Campus Solna comes the emergence of the new city district Hagastaden. This is where Stockholm meets Solna in a new urban environment, with access to excellent communications and green areas. The Hagastaden project is a collaboration between the City of Stockholm, the City of Solna, Stockholm County Council and Akademiska Hus, along with Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, New Karolinska Solna, Stockholm Science City and the Swedish Transport Administration.

Aula Medica

A meeting place for students, researchers and the public The assembly hall of Karolinska Institutet has become an important meeting place in the academic world, as well as a link between the university, the public and various partners. Aula Medica is used to hold lectures and conferences that gather people from all over the world.

Nobel Lectures

Aula Medica was completed in 2013 and hosts Nobel Lectures, academic symposiums, major events and conferences. The entry level of the building offers large exhibition areas, as well as the staircase that leads up to Erling Persson Hall, the heart of the building, which holds an audience of up to 1,000 people. Other than several conference rooms, Aula Medica holds around 100 offices, including those of the management of Karolinska Institutet and parts of the University Administration.

An eye-catching building

The aula building, with its triangular shape and 6,000-glass-pane facade, creates a contrast to the traditional brick buildings of Campus Solna. At the most extreme point, the facade leans 33 degrees, with a 23-metre overhang above Solnavägen. There are also some spectacular details inside Aula Medica. In the lobby, there is an electronic waterfall covering 40 square metres of the wall, with 95 hand-ground crystal cones fitted into the tilted ceiling next to it. The floors and stairs of the interior are made out of white-glazed and smoked oak. In 2014, Aula Medica was given the prestigious award Årets Bygge (Building of the Year), which celebrates the best perfor-

mances in the construction sector in terms of quality, project collaboration, finances and design. The award is given by the industry magazine Byggindustrin.

Architectural competition

In 2001, Wingårdh Arkitektkontor won the competition for who was to design the new assembly hall of Karolinska Institutet. However, for financial reasons, the project was put on ice. Six years later, in 2007, the Erling-Persson Family Foundation made a donation of SEK 350 million, which made the construction of the assembly hall possible.

BRIEF FACTS • Construction period: September 2010 to October 2013. • Inaugurated: 11 October 2013. • Floor space: Approximately 10,000 square meters. • Storeys: Seven. • Number of spaces: Around 100 conference spaces distributed over ten conference rooms. The Erling Persson Hall holds 1,000 people and is the building’s auditorium. There are also around 100 office spaces. • Architect: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor.


Aula Medica

The auditorium itself has a mild, harmonious colour scheme that creates a general sense of intimacy. Many encounters between people have a certain tension – about how a meeting will go or how to get through the giving of a presentation. I think that it’s good to have a space that calms you down rather than stresses you up. I feel that we’ve managed to create that here.” Gert Wingårdh, architect

The Widerström Building

A building full of care The Widerström Building is located by the north entrance of Campus Solna, and is used for purposes including public health and education. It is also home to research on global health, learning, ethics and leadership.

The Widerström Building is named after the first female physician in Sweden, Karolina Widerström, and it has improved the circumstances for the part of the university operations that focuses on public health. The house has several tenants: the Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME), the Department of Public Health Sciences (PHS), the Department of Clinical Neuroscience (CNS), as well as the Public Health Agency of Sweden, the Regional Ethical Review Board in Stockholm (EPN) and Stockholm County Council.

Transparent activities

The building consists of two houses, which hold an auditorium, lecture halls, office spaces and conference rooms. The two lowest levels consist largely of glass, which allows passers-by to catch a glimpse of the activities inside the building. The central areas serve as meeting places for teachers, students and researchers, and are to some extent based on the concept of Future Learning Environments. The red brickwork of the building is embedded in light concrete, forming a link with the brick tradition of the campus.

Prize-winning architect

The Widerström Building was designed by

KOD Arkitekter, awarded a prize in 2013 for its work on this building with the motivation: “For a beautifully and carefully planned building for offices and teaching [...]. The great volume has been dealt with well, and the elements in the facade made from prefabricated concrete with an embedded pattern of brickwork gives a lovely effect. The bricks relate to the associated, older brick architecture, but in a brand new way. The entrance and inner hall give exposure to large raw concrete surfaces and concrete decorations, juxtaposed with signal-coloured doors and floors – rough yet elegant.”

BRIEF FACTS • Construction period: March 2010 to December 2012. • Move-in date: January 2013. • Working in the building: The departments LIME, PHS and CNS, the Public Health Agency of Sweden, EPN and Stockholm County Council. • Floor space: Approximately 15,000 square metres. • Storeys: Seven and ten, respectively. • Number of spaces: Around 700 office spaces are being rented by Karolinska Institutet and the Public Health Agency of Sweden. • Architect: KOD Arkitekter AB.


The WiderstrĂśm Building

The idea of the glass facade is to open up the building as well as Campus Solna to the city, thus inviting the world to come closer.� Sanna Hederus, KOD Arkitekter

Biomedicum

Experimental research gathered in Biomedicum The aim of Biomedicum is to gather a large part of the experimental research conducted at Karolinska Institutet’s Campus Solna under one roof, in an advanced research environment that promotes interdisciplinary collaboration and research. Limitless research

The experimental research at Karolinska Institutet is growing, and the need for more advanced laboratories and modern facilities at Campus Solna is great. Karolinska Institutet is therefore constructing a new building for experimental research across disciplinary boundaries and for collaboration with clinical research. This all aims to facilitate the transition from basic research to clinical studies, thereby promoting practical application.

Cutting-edge laboratory

Biomedicum will be equipped with shared infrastructure, which means that advanced technology platforms and expensive equipment can be utilised by more people, and that research groups can collaborate to achieve results. The laboratory will be one of the most modern in Europe, and is intended to attract researchers from all over the world.

Designed for interaction

Berg | C.F. Møller Architects have designed the building with the aim of creating a working environment with plenty of natural meeting places and opportunities for collaboration, and for exchanging ideas and

experiences. The laboratory, which is being built between Aula Medica and the Widerström Building, will literally have a direct link to the clinical research environment of Karolinska University Hospital, in the form of a walkway across Solnavägen.

BRIEF FACTS • Start of construction: 2013. • Move-in date: During 2018. • Activity: Experimental research in an advanced laboratory environment. • Moving in: Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology (MTC), Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (MBB), Department of Physiology and Pharmacology (FyFa), Department of Neuroscience (Neuro), Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB). • Floor space: Approximately 55,000 square metres. • Number of spaces: Approximately 1,600 places for researchers and other staff. • Architect: Berg | C.F. Møller Architects.

Biomedicum

“New collaboration opportunities promote research” “The idea of gathering all experimental research under one and the same roof, as will be the case at Biomedicum, was born only a few years ago, and it has moved quickly from vision to reality. It is a great step for the research at the university to have all the departments, which are currently spread out over up to ten different buildings around Campus Solna, to be tied to each other physically. It facilitates interaction between researchers from different departments, and generates opportunities for dynamic and continuous changes in the group compositions. If, for example, a researcher changes subjects, it is easy to relocate within the building. This fosters a very creative atmosphere. It will also be easier to interact with the clinics, thanks to the proximity of Karolinska University Hospital. This will promote our basic research as well as our translational research. In practical terms, we will be able to share research infrastructure more efficiently than today. Much of the equipment we use is expensive, and handling it requires special training, so in order for this equipment to pay off, many people must have access to it. These premises are more expensive, but since we can increase productivity by utilising our laboratories more efficiently and sharing the equipment, we will require fewer square metres. We will also be able to streamline the administration, since one and the same unit can

support all the departments in the building. Our goal is for Biomedicum to promote a deepened and improved research, so that we can become even more successful internationally.”

Christer Höög is a professor and Head of the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB), one of the five departments that will move to Biomedicum.

Research at Karolinska University Hospital

Research and education at Karolinska University Hospital Karolinska University Hospital in Solna enables a high level of collaboration between health services, research and education. A new building reinforces the close connection between the hospital and Karolinska Institutet. Along with Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital is an internationally prominent centre of clinical and translational research. The new building is part of the New Karolinska Solna (NKS) project, which is planned in close collaboration with the university. The building is directly linked to Biomedicum and a new conference centre by the Akademiska stråket, creating natural meeting places for researchers, students and clinical practitioners.

Research and education

Most of the hospital’s research laboratories will be located in this new research building, which is designed to facilitate collaboration with the health services and to promote interaction between different research groups. It will also have space for research administration, as well as teaching and training facilities. Through organised collaboration with the university hospital, the students gain access to teachers from the hospital and a disease panorama suitable for education. There are also plans to build education facilities for CPR training, as well as a clinical training centre (KTC), where both staff and students can receive training in clinical elements and skills.

Highly specialised care

Karolinska University Hospital is a central part of one of the greatest health care investments ever made in Stockholm County. The university hospital is to provide the most advanced care for the most severely ill and the most severely injured, while conducting basic research, patientfocused clinical research and education. An increased level of collaboration between health services, research and education will contribute to a more rapid implementation of new research results in the form of new treatment methods and drugs for patients. The new hospital will first open its doors in 2016.

BRIEF FACTS • Construction period: 2012-2017. • Move-in date: June 2017. • The building houses: Cyclotron, Radiochemistry Supply, research laboratory, clinical training centre (KTC), student centre, room for medical x-rays, administrative and office premises etc. • Floor space: Approximately 65,900 square metres (gross area).

Karolinska Institutet Science Park

Research meets business at Karolinska Institutet Science Park Life science activities are conducted in the three houses Alfa, Beta and Gamma, and four prominent universities are involved in the research collaboration Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab). Research meets business

Alfa, Beta and Gamma have been designed to house both high-class laboratories and modern office and conference facilities. There must be room for several operations on each level, which places particular demands on functionality, accessibility and security. Flexibility is an important catchword. The premises may be altered according to the tenants’ wishes or requirements associated with a certain type of research. All the workstations have a joint entrance through the Delta house that connects all the three houses on two levels, which increases the chances of spontaneous meetings. Inside this building, there is also a conference facility and an exhibition section, where innovations can be presented.

Innovation and collaboration

Karolinska Institutet Science Park AB is a wholly owned subsidiary of Karolinska Institutet Holding AB, with the task of renting premises to small and newly started companies. The business park of Karolinska Institutet Science Park AB, in house Gamma, currently hosts Karolinska Institutet’s innovation system, Karolinska Development AB, Cadila Pharmaceuticals Sweden AB and InDex Pharmaceuticals AB.

National centre for molecular biosciences

SciLifeLab is a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University, with the mission to provide Swedish research with large-scale, molecular bioscience analyses and expertise that cannot be found at any other Swedish university. In the Alfa and Gamma houses, researchers are working on advanced mapping of genes and proteins that are relevant to the diagnosis and treatment of our most common diseases.

BRIEF FACTS • Project period: 2008–2013, in stages. • Move-in date: Alfa and Beta 2010, Gamma 2013. • We work here: SciLifeLab (Alfa and Gamma), Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (MBB) and Karolinska Institutet Science Park AB (Gamma) and Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (Beta). • Floor space: Approximately 30,000 square metres. • Storeys: All the houses have seven storeys, and the Delta house links the houses together with service areas, as well as a reception desk and restaurant. • Number of spaces: Around 800 workstations. • Architect: SWECO Architects.

Overview of Campus Huddinge

Campus Huddinge is constructing for the research and education of the future At Campus Huddinge, a project called Laboratory of the Future is planned to be completed in 2017. The project includes the construction of modern premises for research and education that aim to promote interaction and collaboration between departments and clinical practice.

Laboratory of the Future includes part of Alfred Nobels Allé 8 (ANA8) and the forthcoming research building Neo. As with Biomedicum at Campus Solna, the construction will result in advanced facilities for experimental research. All Karolinska Institutet’s departments on Campus Huddinge, as well as the University Library, are involved in the project. Over the next few years, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Södertörn University will be joined at Campus Huddinge by the Red Cross University College. The extended possibilities for cooperation will lead to greater collaboration between these universities and Karolinska University Hospital, with the aim of achieving synergies between health services, research and education. The Swedish National Police Academy will also move to the campus, which will result in shared training facilities at Alfred Nobels Allé 23 for the staff and students of Karolinska Institutet and the National Police Academy.

The majority of the university activities currently located at Novum will eventually move out, while the joint research centre of Karolinska Institutet and Astra Zeneca, the Integrated Cardio Metabolic Centre, will remain in place and have the premises adapted to their activities. In the long term, a link will be built between the research building Neo and Novum that will continue to the new KTH research building Technology for Health, and to Karolinska University Hospital. The goal for the development of Campus Huddinge is to offer a translational environment that promotes meetings and research across different departments and forms of clinical practice.

Laboratory of the Future

Joint resources without department boundaries Laboratory of the Future includes part of Alfred Nobels Allé 8 (ANA8) and the new research building Neo. The environments are to encourage creative meetings and be adaptable to the development of activities.

Laboratory of the Future is to increase collaboration between health services, research and education. Premises and equipment will serve as shared resources, which will lead to a more effective use. The new premises for experimental research will have a total laboratory area for 700 to 800 people.

Alfred Nobels Allé 8

At Alfred Nobels Allé 8, there is currently a unique combination of clinical research laboratories, education laboratories, a training clinic for dentistry students, teaching premises, learning environments, department administration, library and restaurant. One problem with the existing building is that the activities are clearly separated, and there is no natural way for departments and activities to integrate and collaborate. The aim of the project is to integrate the departments in the new premises in a way that will increase collaboration between activities. The renovations at Alfred Nobels Allé will be done on level seven and half of level eight. The idea behind this development of Alfred Nobels Allé 8 is to create laboratories equipped for cutting-edge research, focusing on infectious disease medicine, hepatology, gastroenterology, regenerative medicine, endocrino-

logy and metabolism, where the boundaries between departments and clinical practices are erased, and researchers collaborate based on a common research interest. The new premises will be more accessible to students. Certain functions, such as shared seminar rooms and specialised laboratories, are to promote meetings between students and researchers and create a collaborative environment.

BRIEF FACTS ANA8 • Construction period: December 2013 to December 2017. • Move-in date: End of 2017. • We will collaborate in new premises: The Department of Laboratory Medicine (LabMed), the Center for Infectious Medicine (CIM), the Department of Dental Medicine (DENTMED), along with parts of the Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC): the Division of Ear, Nose and Throat Diseases (ÖNH), the Advanced Center for Translational Regenerative Medicine (ACTREM), the Division of Speech and Language Pathology, the Division of Audiology and the Division of Surgery. • Floor space: Approximately 9,000 square metres. • Storeys: One and a half storeys will be rebuilt. • Architect: Respons/LINK.

The new research building Neo

The Neo research building is being built in front of Karolinska University Hospital, on top of the Medicinaren visitors’ parking garage, between Blickagången and Hälsovägen. The new building was factored in already when the garage was built. Part of the Laboratory of the Future will also be built directly on the ground. The research building Neo will be characterised by collaboration, and by a flexible resource use. Neo is planned according to functions – not departments – and will mainly consist of laboratory environments.

Neo

Collaborations between experimental and clinical research will create the conditions for successful, groundbreaking and interdisciplinary research partnerships. Collaboration also promotes an effective use of shared infrastructure, such as expensive equipment. In addition to the laboratory environments, the building will house two bookable lecture halls, for 80 and 200 people respectively, which are based on the Future Learning Environments concept. The premises of Neo are planned to be adaptable to the continuous development of activities.


Laboratory of the Future

Huddinge is also home to the KTH Medical Engineering programmes, which are conducted in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet, as well as the Center for Technology in Medicine and Health, a collaborative project between KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm County Council. Next to Neo, an identical building will be constructed, Technology for Health (TFH), which will house KTH and the Red Cross nursing programme. The buildings will have a shared entrance to promote interaction and spontaneous meetings between the universities and Karolinska University Hospital.

BRIEF FACTS NEO • Construction period: December 2013 to December 2017. • Move-in date: End of 2017. • Moving in: The Department of Biosciences and Nutrition (Bionut: all activities), the Department of Medicine, Huddinge (MedH: Lipidlab and Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine (HERM)) and the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS: parts of the Division of Clinical Geriatrics and the Division of Neurogeriatrics). • Floor space: Approximately 10,000–15,000 square metres. • Storeys: Eight. • Architect: Tengbom.

Future Learning Environments

Creating room for learning The project Future Learning Environments is based on education research, with the goal of ensuring that the learning environments at the campuses of Karolinska Institutet, along with the clinical environments where teaching is carried out, create the best possible conditions for education of the highest quality.

Physical learning environments

The Stockholm County Council and Karolinska Institutet started the project Future Learning Environments within health service programmes in 2009. The purpose of this project is to adapt the physical learning environment, i.e. lecture rooms and informal meeting places, to the teaching methods used within the programmes today. The development of digital media and IT means that learning is no longer limited in time and space. In addition, modern pedagogy is much more problem and activitybased than before which places new demands on lecture rooms promoting dialogue. The project has three fundamental principles: dialogue, visualisation of knowledge, and collaborative learning. • Dialogue. The design of traditional learning environments has often centred on monologue, with the emphasis on knowledge transfer. The environments now being developed are instead intended to facilitate conversation and active learning. Lecture rooms and informal environments are intended to promote dialogue and a problem-based, active pedagogy. • Visualising knowledge and previous experiences. All students and other course participants bring knowledge and experience

into any learning situation. Being able to visualise arguments, how something is perceived or assumed to work, is an important part of learning. This is why all the new learning environments have been provided with plenty of new writing surfaces, which allows participants to visualise their thoughts to a much greater extent than before. • Collaborative learning. Students and course participants learn from and with each other. Learning takes place outside of scheduled teaching hours to an increasing extent, as much of the education resources are available in digital form.

Meeting areas

The Future Learning Environments project does not only cover traditional environments. Outside of the lecture rooms are the informal meeting places, such as corridors and other study areas within a building.

BRIEF FACTS • Execution: At Campus Solna and Campus Huddinge, as well as at the hospitals where Karolinska Institutet teaches. • Aim: To create spaces for active learning. • During the period: 2011–2018.


Future Learning Environments

Future Learning Environments

These intervening spaces represent important social zones. Creating opportunities for students from different programmes to meet one another promotes inter-professional learning. Informal environments within a hospital are also highly important to learning, socialisation and reflection. The project has therefore chosen to make the informal environments more attractive, with the aim of motivating students to spend time studying in the premises provided by the university.

Popular concept

Within Karolinska Institutet, more than fifty environments have been remodelled so far. In Solna, for example, the Berzelius Laboratory has been given new group rooms

and study spaces, and many of the bookable lecture rooms have been rebuilt. In Huddinge, another 50 lecture rooms and several informal environments will be rebuilt. The research laboratory Biomedicum under construction at Campus Solna, will accommodate a conference environment based on the same concept. The new learning environments within Karolinska University Hospital, including clinical, student and conference centres, are also based on the same idea. The concept will also be used for two interactive halls and one large informal learning environment in the new research building Neo, which is to be constructed on Campus Huddinge. (Read more about Biomedicum on page 12 and Neo on page 28.)


Future Learning Environments

Anyone who visits one of the learning environments at Karolinska Institutet and the hospital should see immediately that education and learning is a high priority at KI.� Jonas Nordquist, Director of the Medical Case Centre and project manager of Future Learning Environments
