In Iceland history, the Northeast is known for innovation and entrepreneurship. From the times of natural scientist Star-Oddi in the 12th century (who lived in the region) and up to the first harnessing of geothermal steam power, the locals have embraced new technology and wisdom, achieved through their own good sense and foreign trade. Akureyri city hosted many factories at the beginning of the industrial age, from shoe making to ship building, and continues to provide skilled workers through local advanced technical and specialised education.

Above all, the people of the region have diverse skills that can be applied on land or sea, and are willing to implement new technologies and even improve them. The people living in the region have an international mind-set, with close to half of the population having at some point in their lives lived abroad. We are willing to assist you, wherever you come from!
