Millions of games sold worldwide, electric motors
that are transforming the automotive industry, and the
world's largest open network for business transactions.
With strong, cutting-edge expertise in game development, smart industry and IT, it’s no coincidence that company after company is choosing to establish itself right here. In fact, Skövde is not only one of Sweden’s leading cities in game development, it is also one of the fastest-growing. In the industry-unique Sweden Game Arena, we are not only developing the gaming companies of the future, but also putting the Swedish gaming industry on the map internationally.
Science Park Skövde is an established arena for innovation and growth, giving companies in gaming, smart industry and fintech a meeting place, a community and an innovative ecosystem to enable the sustainable solutions, services and digital experiences of the future. Through successful startup-programmes and well-developed scaleup activities, we enable companies to grow and succeed, so that they not only make a difference, but actually change the entire playing field. We settle for nothing less.

Choosing Science Park Skövde also means becoming part of an innovative and vibrant ecosystem where business, academia and Skövde Municipality work together to provide companies with expertise, networks and opportunities. Thanks to a close partnership with the University of Skövde, companies in the park can join forces on research projects and find students and talent with the right skills. Bringing companies together in the right context is one of our most important roles. Besides premises and auxiliary services, the ecosystem also provides companies with access to specialised business coaches, start-up programmes, test environments, unique networks and a vibrant community. This is where companies develop – from conception to expansion and internationalisation – and become an important cog in the development of both the business sector and Skövde.
The industry of the future faces many challenges. Demands on production development, skills, knowledge and innovation are growing rapidly. ASSAR has been developed to meet global trends and challenges and is an arena that supports the manufacturing industry through education, innovation support, research and technology development. Here, you can participate in seminars, workshops, networks, see research in practice, get help starting a business, and much more. As a physical site, ASSAR aims to establish a world-leading integrated physical and virtual development environment for research, technology development, innovation and education. With ASSAR we want to give the manufacturing industry and technology companies in the Skaraborg region a competitive edge.
Our companies are growing and need space, not just here in Skövde, but all over the world. To enable growth and space for more companies, we will over the next five years create an area with 500 new jobs and within ten years we aim to double the total area of our premises. In the new district of Skövde Science City, just a stone’s throw from the city centre, travel hub and university, modern and functional offices will be interspersed with housing to create a vibrant 24/7 district.
Skövde is close to Sweden’s largest markets and has modern infrastructure, the Western Main Line and logistics opportunities and communications, allow for both travel and commuting. Two hours by rail will take you to Stockholm and an hour will get you to Gothenburg, while Skövde’s proximity to several airports makes accessing the world beyond simple. The university provides the business community with a constant supply of students and talent, which has made Skövde a prominent technology and IT hub offering excellent conditions for finding the right skills.
We’d love to hear from you if you would like to find out more about our establishment opportunities.
