Funding from the Northeast Iceland Development fund

Last Wednesday, May 18th, the Northeast Iceland development fund (Uppbyggingarsjóður Norðurlands eystra) held a formal grant awarding ceremony in Breiðamýri, Reykjadalur. A large group of people attended, many of them who were receiving a grant to work on exciting projects, both involving innovation and economic activies as well as cultural projects and events.

We are very glad to inform you that Rif Field Station is one of the projects that was rewarded a grant at this time, and we are looking forward to put this important funding to good use in the further development of the station and its operations. Thus, we greet the summer full of optimism, ready for the many exciting projects ahead here in Raufarhöfn and Melrakkaslétta.
