Reykjavik University is part of Reykjavík Science City


Reykjavík Science City, a new tech-park for innovation, research, and technology has been established - with Reykjavik University as one of the founding members.

The Science City is geographically defined by the buildings of Reykjavik University, University of Iceland and the Landspitali University Hospital, and is within walking distance from the city's centre. The project will be marketed internationally as a destination for research, development, and investment, with a focus on biotech and health-related technology, engineering, computer science, and video games development.

The Science City will be a diverse and inspiring setting to meet the challenges of a dynamic global environment. The area will be a mix of the aforementioned universities, the hospital, new tech-companies, and entrepreneurship hubs. It will also include housing for the public and students. 

An agreement on the development of Reykjavik Science City was signed recently by Dagur B. Eggertsson, Mayor of Reykjavík, Ari Kristinn Jónsson, President of Reykjavík University, Jón Atli Benediktsson, Rector of the University of Iceland, Páll Matthíasson, Director of Landspitali University Hospital and Sigurður Magnús Garðarsson, Chairman of the Board of the University of Iceland Science Parks.
