Students

Each year more than 3,000 students obtain new knowledge in business, technology and law at Reykjavik University. These students have a fresh perspective, a desire to use their newly aquired knowledge and to work on real projects with industry.

The most common way for students to work with industry is either through student projects or internship programs and in some cases, like the Fisheries Challenge, to come up with innovative solutions within a strict time-frame. This way students, companies and organisations alike can benefit from the newest knowledge and research from the university community and thereby support innovation processeses and new value creation.

The Fisheries Challenge

A competition for aspiring experts in environmental issues, marketing, software, technology and logistics to prove their capabilities and talent by developing solutions for the seafood industry. The competition has been held twice. The event is organised in co-operation between Reykjavik University and Fisheries Iceland with the support of Icelandair and The US Embassy in Iceland. This year's assignment dealt with the global challenge of climate change, following the landmark agreement in Paris last December. The challenge took place at Reykjavik University 21-25 January 2016 and was open to all RU students.
