UIC Södertälje opens doors

In February 2012, it was announced that AstraZeneca’s Södertälje research facility would be closed. The local municipality appointed Uppsala Innovation Centre as the region’s business incubator with a mission to encourage more vigorous company growth in the area.

When AstraZeneca researcher Johanna Haglund received notice of termination she thought: “Everything that we have built up cannot just go to waste”. Today, Johanna is CEO at her own company MetaSafe, a new successful contract research lab that supplies data on metabolism.
