Sustainability Institute and Forum (SIF)

Welcome to SIF!

The objective of SIF is to foster research and education in sustainable development focusing on the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To this purpose, SIF will be inclusive and open to external ideas in order to account for the interdisciplinary nature of the SDGs.

At SIF, we support and engage in research activities that promote sustainable development across a variety of industry sectors. As a Reykjavik University research institution, we engage with both the School of Technology and the School of Social Sciences.
