IASC and Rannís, the Icelandic Centre for Research, are excited to announce that Iceland has extended support for the IASC Secretariat to be located in Akureyri, Iceland for a further 5 years. This secures the work of the IASC Secretariat through the end of 2026.
Iceland funds the full-time Executive Secretary, a part-time Executive Officer, and a part-time Communications Manager, in addition to an operating budget for the Secretariat. Hosting by Rannís also provides essential infrastructure, financial, and staff support resources. Funding comes from the Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture.
Akureyri is an ideal home for IASC. Being located in northern Iceland allows IASC to better cooperate with the many Arctic scientists and Arctic science organizations located in Akureyri, including the Icelandic Arctic Cooperation Network, the CAFF and PAME working groups of the Arctic Council, the Stefansson Arctic Institute, the University of Akureyri, and many more.
