Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir welcomes NORDUnet 2022 to Iceland

Valter Nordh and Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir

In her opening address, Icelandic minister of Science, Industry and Innovation Áslaug Arna Sigurbjörnsdóttir, welcomed 280 delegates from 30 countries to Reykjavik for the NORDUnet 2022 conference. The minister stressed that science is always international and that the best science is produced in collaboration with others. This is why infrastructures like the NRENs are essential – and why it is important that we meet in person again, after the pandemic.

Iceland has a strong tradition for international collaboration in science, and is proud of the country’s record in co-creation. The minister highlighted the national cyber-security strategy recently agreed for Iceland, and stressed for the audience the crucial role played by the research and education sector in ensuring the education necessary to execute on ambitious cyber security goals.
