The aim of the University of Iceland Research Fund is to strengthen research within the University.
The board of the fund consists of the chairpersons of five separate evaluation panels, one for each School within the University, and a board chair nominated by the University President and appointed by the University Council.
Grantees who have an active 2-3 year grant from last allocations are expected not to apply for a new grant until towards the end of their current grant period. A successful application for a multi-year grant will be allocated a grant for the number of years applied for. Annual progress reports are no longer required but a final report on any previous grant must be submitted along with a new grant application.
It is not necessary to turn in a list of publications since the evaluation is based on the annual reports (from 2015-2019). For further information, please contact Svavar Steinarr Guðmundsson for assistance.
