Aula Medica is the home of the 2020 EIT Health Summit, acting as the central hub for the conference. This is the go-to venue for check-in and will host the main plenary sessions alongside the partner and start-up exhibition.
Aula Medica is part of the Karolinska Institutet. The Karolinska Institutet is one of the world’s leading medical universities. Their vision is to advance knowledge about life and strive towards better health for all. Since 1901 the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has selected the Nobel laureates in Physiology or Medicine.
BioClinicum is located at the centre of the Karolinska Solna site. The building creates a bridge between Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital as well as a centre for research and education within the hospital. A skyway also connects BioClinicum to Biomedicum, the laboratory research centre at Karolinska Institutet. The building is designed to increase the integration between research, education and health care, and to promote interactions between research groups.
Biomedicum is Karolinska Institutet’s ultramodern laboratory building for experimental biomedical research with the aim to facilitate interaction, collaboration and the sharing of experiences, ideas and technologies across scientific borders.

We will also be hosting an Awards Ceremony and Conference Dinner at the Vasa Museum. The evening will start with a drinks reception and tours of the museum, followed by the Health Catapult Presentations and dinner.
The Vasa Museum is one of Scandinavia's most visited museums. It is here that you will find in all its glory, the unique and well-preserved warship Vasa from 1628, embellished with hundreds of wooden sculptures. The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed, the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue.
