The Iceland Ocean Cluster has hired eight young undergraduate students this summer to work on several projects related to the cluster. The cluster received 87 applications and had many good candidates to choose from. We would like to welcome them aboard and introduce the team that will be working with us this summer, they are:

Sigfús Ólafur Guðmundsson, Arnar Jónsson, Jón Guðjónsson, Einar Smárason, Brynja Björg Halldórsdóttir, Sigurður Logi Snæland, Haukur Már Gestsson og Heiðdís Skarphéðinsdóttir. They all have different and versatile backgrounds, such as Fisheries science, Business Administration, Law, Economics and Industrial Engineering. They come from three of the four main universities, University of Iceland, Reykjavik University and University of Akureyri.

In the following picture you can see a part of the group which was hard at work at the office this morning.
