Kiruna in Swedish Lapland together with Spaceport Sweden are proud to announce the partnering with IDEAS, a world leading innovation studio, for the development of a Space Visitor & Science Center in Kiruna, contributing to a world-class all year round destination.
The tourism industry is one of Sweden’s fastest growing industries where the national objective is to double the industry turnover, revenue, jobs and visitors until the year 2020. As part of this, the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, on behalf of the Swedish Government, has identified Kiruna in Swedish Lapland, as one of five locations in Sweden with the potential to develop into sustainable and internationally competitive destination.
