Arctic Innovation Lab

About

Our story

  • 2014-2015

    In 2014 the Arctic Innovation Lab’s Founder, Halla Hrund Logadóttir saw the need to attract new and diverse voices into the Arctic dialogue to address the changes in the region. She started the Lab’s journey by bringing together politicians, leaders and students in the field. In collaboration with the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, the Brookings Institutions, the Iceland School of Energy at Reykjavík University, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and public and private stakeholders the first innovation focused projects took place in 2014 and 2015.

  • 2016-2017

    Based previous years outcomes, along with the growing demand for global attention and engagement of younger and more diverse group of leaders, the Arctic Innovation Lab was formally born in 2016. Our first Lab in Reykjavík brought together 250 people from multiple organizations, companies, and universities to discuss new ideas and solutions for the Arctic.

  • 2017-2018

    We’ve kept gradually growing our operations and partnerships. All in all, close to 1000 people have from over 30 countries participated in the Arctic Innovation Labs. We welcome social and policy innovation along with business ideas. Our goal is simply to become a supporting hub for Arctic Innovation which we believe is a key ingredient for the Arctic region sustainable, prosperous and pristine future!
