University of Iceland receives second-lowest level of funding
New report: The University of Iceland receives the second-lowest level of public funding of all European universities, the only university with less funding being the University of Kroatia, shows a new report from the European University Association.
Chair of the European University Association, Tove Bull, says the quality of the research from the university of Iceland is high despite the low level of public funding. Rector of the University og Iceland, Kristin Ingolfsdottir, has announced a plan to increase the number of PhD candidates five-fold in the coming five years. The government responds that they will increase the funding of the university.
