Neo condensation 2023-2024

Background and aim

The activities in Neo are today spread over floors 6 to 8 and a large part of the premises is not optimally used. A lot of vacant spaces means that research groups are scattered around Neo, something that does not promote collaboration nor interaction. This also leads to higher rents. 

The research activities are to be condensed from three floors to two. All activities on floor 8 must be moved down to floors 6 and 7. No extensive renovations will be carried out. The condensation and reconstructions are to be carried out in such a way that the research groups' activities are disrupted as little as possible, and the costs kept to a minimum.

Transparency and continuously updated information regarding the relocation is of utmost importance to the employees. Communication with concerned staff will take place via e-mail, meetings, the Neo's website, information screens and newsletters.

All departments in Neo, BioNut, MedH, NVS and CLINTEC, are involved in the project.
