From 3-5 May 2023, our colleagues at the University of Iceland Science Park will be hosting a conference of the IASP European Division in Reykjavik, Iceland, where discussions will focus on the idea of Innovation 360º.

Taking place in Gróska Creative Community in Reykjavík, in the heart of Reykjavík between universities and the national hospital, it is a connected and diverse business and research environment, where a startup mentality is constantly cultivated. While Reykjavík is proudly one of the world's smallest capitals, it possesses one of the most innovative, flexible, and creative workforces you can find. 

Wherever you may be in Iceland, you are not far from the sea nor the mountains. A 20-minute drive from downtown Reykjavík and you can find some alone time for a hike in the mountains or walk along the beach. Geothermally heated pools are located throughout the country and are perfect for exercise and unwinding. 

Iceland draws inspiration from both sides of the Atlantic, combining an entrepreneurial, can-do attitude with a high-quality Nordic lifestyle. Located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland is a place where you live side by side with forces of nature, and people have learned to think differently to survive and thrive. Because Iceland has such a small population, it's no surprise there is a strong sense of culture, family, and community. These social ties extend to collaborative efforts between entrepreneurs, the sciences, academia, business, and creative industries to solve pressing global challenges.

The programme will offer a 360° journey through various fields of innovation in Iceland, including presentations from fast-growing companies and promising startups working on health and lifestyle, energy and climate solutions. Technical visits will include field trips to geothermal power plants and companies that develop side products from energy production.
