AlbaNova University Center, the Stockholm Center for Physics, Astronomy and Biotechnology, is a research and education initiative run jointly by the Royal Institute of Technology(KTH)and Stockholm University(SU).

THE CENTER'S NAME

The official name of the Center is

Swedish:
AlbaNova universitetscentrum
Stockholms centrum för fysik, astronomi och bioteknik
(observera att "universitetscentrum" och ämnesbeteckningarna ska skrivas med gemener)

English:
AlbaNova University Center
[The] Stockholm Center for Physics, Astronomy and Biotechnology

In most cases the sub-heading should be left out, for example in running text or in addresses.

Note: During 2001 and 2002, the Center's official name was what it now the sub-heading, "[The] Stockholm Center for Physics, Astronomy and Biotechnology". The official abbreviation was "SCFAB", which has in some contexts lived on after the change to AlbaNova, for example in some web and email addresses.
Please do not use the abbreviation in other contexts.

"Fysikcentrum"("The Physics Center"), the project name of the Center when it was being built, is also occasionally still used in Swedish, though it no longer gives a correct description of the Center.
