The Icelandic Tourism Research Centre receives funding from the Northern Periphery Programme

The ITRC has, along with the Research Centre of the University of Akureyri, the wildlife management division of the Environmental agency and partners in Sweden, Finland, Scotland, Greenland and Canada, received funding from the Northern Periphery Programme (NPP) to carry on developing hunting tourism in the Northern periphery. This funding rests on the success of work undertaken in 2007 to prepare for this application for a three year programme. In the following three years the task is to develop sustainable hunting tourism across the Northern periphery.

An announcement and details of other projects involving Icelandic institutes can be found here in Icelandic, but this project was one of 12 approved projects, out of a total of 19 applications. In four of these 12 there are Icelandic partners.
