The Network of public universities in Iceland was established in August 2010 following a policy document published by the Ministry for Education and Culture.
The objectives of the Network project are to strengthen and promote the higher education system in Iceland, to achieve more efficient use of resources in university operations, and to ensure strong and varied higher education operations throughout the country.
Parties to the network are:

- Hólar University College
The project managers in the network are Halldór Jónsson, Director of the Division of Science and Innovation and Sæunn Stefánsdóttir, specialist at the Office of the Rector and Director of the University of Iceland's research centres.
