The symposium will take place at the Icelandic Seal Center museum next Friday, 24th of June 16:00-20:00.
You are most welcome
The aim of this symposium is to present ongoing research at the center, as well as getting to know scientists and students that have different connections to the Icelandic Seal center (ISC). In the first session, Páll Línberg, manager of the ISC will give a presentation about the structure and background of the center. Research department heads, Sandra M. Granquist (Seal Research department) and Jessica Aquino (Tourism Research department) will also give overviews of ongoing research in the different departments. In Sessions 2 and 3, researchers associated with ISC and students who are working on master theses or doing internships at the ISC will present research they do in cooperation with ISC and/or projects they have worked on in the past.
Sarah Walter, a summer student at the Icelandic Seal Center, is conducting a population survey as part of her internship in collaboration with Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
Through this survey, we would like to learn more about how the community of Húnaþing vestra (HV) feels about tourism development in the area and what tourism products they would like to see in the future.
It will take approximately ten minutes to complete this questionnaire. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary but all help is very much appreciated. Your information will be anonymous.
