Kista hosts departments of both Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. Because of its ICT industries, it became referred to as Chipsta or Sweden's Silicon Valley in the 1980s. Today Kista Science City is a vibrant cluster of ICT industries with more than 20 000 people involved in developing next generation 4G mobile telecommunications and Information and Communications solutions. Kista is named after an old farm, still located in the area. The construction of the modern parts were started in the 1970s.
