There are three science parks connected to Chalmers – Johanneberg Science Park, Lindholmen Science Park and Sahlgrenska Science Park. The science parks combine companies’ knowhow and innovative drive with academic expertise. In the creative environment of the science park your company is always close to expert knowledge – a rapid way of becoming more competitive.
A characteristic of Chalmers science park environments is that they offer more than mere accommodation. They offer their companies close proximity to a high-tech intellectual environment with research on the technical front and with up-to-date engineering expertise that can be recruited. They also offer qualified Chalmers organizations which can make an active contribution to technological and business development and have an overall view of Chalmers’ whole range of skills and resources. Chalmers’ science parks therefore constitute suitable environments for the development of new technology, innovations and business concepts, both for greater competitiveness in existing areas of business and for new business ideas.
Johanneberg Science Park
Johanneberg Science Park has been formed by the Chalmers University of Technology Foundation and the City of Gothenburg with the aim to develop an environment which stimulates collaboration between academia, industry and other players in society at Chalmers Campus Johanneberg. Initially the activities support the development of the fields of Urban Development, Energy, Material- and Nanotechnology
. Another priority is to make the Campus Johanneberg to a more living community. An environment that adds value to residents nearby, the people who work here and for those companies that choose to establish in the area.
Johanneberg Science Park is owned by the founders and AB Volvo, Gothenburg Energy, HSB, Riksbyggen and Tyréns AB. Their common interest is the ability to work closely with other companies, institutes and universities to strengthen its competitiveness and growth potential, through access to expertise and attractive recruiting environment.
