Conferences and lectures

The University Centre sponsors conferences and lectures of all sizes and types. These range from large international conferences on cultural, natural or scientific matters to smaller, informal talks about almost any subject imaginable.

A regular attraction at the University Centre is Vísindaport, a series of informal lunchtime discussions on Fridays, whose name translates roughly as Gateway to Science. Vísindaport is a forum for brief presentations on research, whether completed or in progress, and on other subjects of interest.

Master's students are presenting their theses and teachers as well as guest researchers give regularly talks on their specialisations.
