Partner Universities & Institutions
Students did their research projects either at RES in Akureyri, or in collaboration with partner research institutions in Iceland such as; The University of Akureyri, The Innovation Centre Iceland, the University of Iceland and The National Energy Authority. The students also did their research at Icelandic energy and engineering firms and laboratories such as; ISOR-Iceland GeoSurvey, Mannvit Engineering, Landsvirkjun Power, Nordurorka, Reykjavik Geothermal, ExOrka Engineering, UTRAS Engineering, VERKIS Engineering, Reykjavik Energy (OR), Prokatin, and Carbon Recycling International (CRI), to name some of the main organizations. RES students could also work on their thesis research outside of Iceland, within the laboratories of foreign partner universities and research institutions.
Renewable Energy Science Research
RES was fortunate to collaborate with leading researchers at some of the best research institutions and technical universities in the world. RESnet was a partnership of more than 30 universities which focuses on higher education in renewable energy, research, innovative energy solutions, and general knowledge transfer in sustainable energy development and policy implementation. These established partnerships between RES and international technical universities and energy companies guaranteed future faculty and staff exchange, plus vital research collaboration.
RES | RESTARTED will focus on re-establishing the collaborations as well as bring in new ones.
