The festival where icelandic innovation meets the rest of the world.

Welcome to Iceland Innovation Week, a new festival celebrating and showcasing innovation taking place in the end of May every year. Different events in different venues will take place throughout the week ranging from panel discussions to company visits to an icy ocean dip and so much more.

That means not only founders and startups participate but also larger companies and public institutions. Our aim is to increase the visibility of the innovation sector, create a platform where knowledge can be shared and become a vibrant, international marketing window.

Lets tune in, listen and learn more about what we can do in order to transition.
