Guðrún Pétursdóttir, Director for Institute for Sustainability Studies, University of Iceland

Guðrún Pétursdóttir has for years collaborated on diverse projects with the support of NordForsk. They have all been based on sustainability and social responsibility. The projects have focused on the safe harvesting of natural resources and resilience of Nordic communities in the face of natural changes, not least natural disasters.

It has been extremely rewarding to witness the quality of the collaboration that has developed between the Nordic participants from various fields; a partnership and trust that I know will last long after the formal period of funding.
