Space Iceland is pleased to announce that this summer, we will be hosting 11 university student researchers through the Space Iceland NextGen Summer Jobs in Space program. The project is partially funded by the National Student Innovation Fund, managed by Rannis (The Icelandic Centre for Research), with additional funding provided by Space Iceland and the Promoting Copernicus project, supported by Landmælingar Íslands, the National Land Survey of Iceland, under the Copernicus' Framework Partnership Agreement on Copernicus User Uptake. In line with Space Iceland's cooperative agreement with Bifröst University on space policy, law, and business development, Bifröst has generously provided office space, contacts, and support from their staff for this year's researchers.
