Objective of the Project

The project followed up on already established contacts between VSB- The Technical University of Ostrava and the two most prominent universities in Iceland - the University of Iceland and Reykjavík University. The aim of the project was to facilitate contact between the academic and research staff of all involved universities in order to prepare joint proposals for international research projects (in particular, for Horizon2020). Project activities comprised visits by representatives of Icelandic partners to Ostrava within the framework of the “Icelandic Week in Ostrava”, establishing direct contacts between research groups focusing on common topics and establishing consortia for preparing joint project proposals. Other activities included formalization of the partnership among the partner universities in the form of Cooperation Agreements in order to facilitate student exchanges and the mobility of academic staff, and a follow-up visit by the Czech academic staff to Iceland.
