WELCOME TO CURIOSUM (former Sliperiet)

In April 2019, Sliperiet changed it´s name to Curiosum and merged with the science center Umevatoriet. This autumn we will take the next step. and together with our tenants move into the renewed premises of Sliperiet at Arts Campus at Umeå University.

In 2020 Curiosum will open. A new science center, to inspire young and old with science and technology. We believe curiosity can change the world.

Look out for our new website coming soon!

The European Parliament visited Sliperiet


On June 8, a group of members from the Committee on Regional Development at the European Parliament, visited Sliperiet. The visit was one of the parts in a comprehensive 3-day program in Umeå, with the aim of showing the visitors the areas and ways in which northern Sweden is at leading edge, as well as the challenges facing the region.

In the program, the hosts, the Europaforum Northern Sweden and the Region of Västerbotten, placed great emphasis on providing insight into the expansion within the areas of innovation, business development, smart specialization, digitization, tourism, transport infrastructure and bioeconomy - areas that are integrated in various ways in Sliperiets´ activities.
