The city and the region of Uppsala are in an expansive period and the development of the university can play an important role in the development of the area. The pilot case will also benefit making the Campus plan 2040 for Uppsala University.
Our focus is various future scenarios for the regiment area of Polacksbacken and its integration with the university campus as well as adjacent emerging townships. For the participatory dialogue we are setting up a physical meeting & maker space in the center of Uppsala.
Uppsala pilot case is coordinated by Uppsala University. Contact us!
