Last year Iceland GeoSurvey (ÍSOR) applied for five research grants to The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation; HORIZON 2020. Four of those applications were recently accepted.
Recently ÍSOR advertised seven vacancies due to increased activity in both geothermal and earth science research in Iceland and abroad. In total more than 300 applications were received for these posts.
