Icelandic Universities Cooperate on Innovation

By Iceland Review

The Iceland Academy of the Arts, in cooperation with Reykjavík University and Bifröst University, is organizing three extensive projects to meet a pressing demand in the field of education and innovation.

The first project includes an interdisciplinary two-month course where philosophy and related subjects will be taught. Around 120 students are expected to enroll to the course, Morgunbladid reports.

The second project includes a development center on the internet, some sort of a prelude to seed companies, where people with innovative ideas can search for cooperation.

The third project is called “the house of ideas” where individuals and groups will be provided with facilities to work on their innovative ideas, or a “creational power station” as rector of the Icelandic Academy of the Arts, Hjálmar H. Ragnarsson refers to it.

“It is a very extensive project where we want to keep knowledge from being wasted and develop it,” Ragnarsson commented.
