Cooperation with Russia

The University of Iceland strongly condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine and expresses solidarity with university students and staff of Ukrainian universities, as well as the entire nation.

All collaboration with universities and institutions has been put on hold. In general, actions should not be targeted at individuals, and it is acknowledged that collaboration in education and research is frequently based on academic peer-to-peer relationships. Many Russian academics have publicly criticized the invasion. As a result, continued collaboration will have to be evaluated on a case-to-case basis, taking into account the government's guidelines at any given time.
