Prominent voices from research welcome visitors to Stockholm

For several years, Arlanda Express has allowed famous personalities to welcome passengers to Stockholm. In late October four new voices will be introduced on the trains. This time it is Sweden's research and science elite whose voices will be heard.

The four internationally acclaimed researchers who will welcome Arlanda Express passengers to Stockholm are Laila Ohlgren, Håkan Lans, Bengt Samuelsson and Mats Leijon Just this past May, Ohlgren received the Polhelm Prize. The four successful researchers have been recipients of the Nobel Prize and a host of other prestigious awards.

"For being such a small country, Sweden has much to be proud of internationally. ABBA, Bergman, Björn Borg, H&M, IKEA and Volvo are just a small sample. However, not many people are aware that Sweden has the most researchers per capita in the world, researchers with major international successes," says Per Thorstenson, CEO, Arlanda Express.

The initiative with voices from research was launched after Arlanda Express CEO Per Thorstenson was stopped by a German traveler who had listened to the existing voices on the train. He was struck by the fact that not a single one was a scientist or researcher, an asset which he felt Sweden should showcase.

"We decided then and there to take the opportunity to present some of the Swedish inventors whose innovations have made a difference all over the world. Sweden is a real research nation and we should be proud of that," says Per Thorstenson.

In connection with the launch of the new voices on the trains, Arlanda Express is publishing a brochure that provides a more detailed introduction to Sweden's inventors, researchers and scientists through the ages. "From dynamite to Skype – a small guide to Sweden, a research nation" will be available in the chair pockets on Arlanda Express trains, as well as at www.arlandaexpress.se from the end of October.
