New Fulbright Iceland-NSF Cooperation in Cyber-security and Critical Infrastructure


The National Science Foundation and the Fulbright Commission in Iceland are partnering on a Pilot project to support Fulbright grants for U.S. academics and professionals working in the field of cybersecurity and critical infrastructure. The project is intended to foster collaborations and build relationships between U.S. and Icelandic institutions and scholars on these important shared issues.

Grants will be awarded in any of these areas: (1) pure and applied research; (2) workforce, curriculum and capacity development; (3) research coordination; (4) transitioning research into practice; (5) enterprise risk management; and (6) law, policy, and international relations. Grant activities may include teaching at the university level, delivering seminars or workshops, conducting research, consulting with Icelandic institutions, developing training curricula and materials, and assisting with assessments and evaluations.

In this first phase of this Pilot program for 2018, only Fulbright Specialist grants will be awarded. Interested U.S. scholars and Icelandic host institutions should consult: https://fulbrightspecialist.worldlearning.org/ and http://www.fulbright.is/fraedimenn_til_islands.

In the second phase of the program, scheduled for 2019-2020, Core Scholar grants will be available and listed in the Fulbright Catalog of Awards, https://awards.cies.org/.
