Funders and founders
Uppsala BIO is part of STUNS, the Foundation for Collaboration between the Universities in Uppsala, Business and the Public Sector.
Ever since its start, Uppsala BIO has enjoyed strong support from regional financiers to develop the life science innovation environment, both regionally and, via VINNOVA (the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems), nationally.
The founders of STUNS are also the founders of Uppsala BIO: Uppsala University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala County Chamber of Commerce, Uppsala County Administrative Board, Uppsala Regional Council, and the City of Uppsala.
