Iceland and Greenland sign new research partnership

The Greenland Research Council and the Icelandic Centre for Research (Rannís) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support and increase opportunities for collaboration between their respective research communities. The scope of the agreement is comprehensive, as it aims to enable synergies between research, innovation, education, facilities and training activities, create more opportunities for future joint or allied funding of activities and projects, facilitate exchange and mobility and promote other scientific and organizational cooperation.

A joint workshop is taking place on 25-26 August 2022, as a pre-event of the Arctic Circle Greenland Forum. The workshop will also offer the possibility to explore available funding opportunities supporting collaborative projects and discuss Greenland and Iceland research priorities. Lastly, the workshop will be an excellent forum for networking.

Director of Rannís, Ágúst Hjörtur Ingþórsson, welcomed the agreement as “an important part of our Arctic strategy and cooperation and we look forward to realising various economic, scientific, innovative and educational opportunities in collaboration with our closest neighbour”.
