Our organization

Uppsala International Hub is an initiative designed to attract and welcome skilled internationals to our county and help them to thrive here long-term. It is a collaboration between the business community, academia, our municipality and county and is run within the framework of a regional platform.

This site is your guide to making Uppsala your new home, whether you’re settling here for good or a short while, coming alone or with family. We link to official sites, in English wherever possible, so you can get the information you really need.
