RU has been actively working on developing international partnerships to promote international education and training of our students and staff, to enhance knowledge transfer opportunities, and to expand our influence internationally. At the heart of our approach to education is the development of RU as a source and driver of innovation and creating a learning environment that is conducive to developing entrepreneurial skills. The School of Technology (including the Departments of Engineering and Computer Science) places a strong emphasis on active research and development with a special focus on e-health and health technology through interdisciplinary teamwork together with The School of Social Sciences (including the Departments of Sport Science and the Department of Psychology) and other national and international collaborators such as the Landspitali –The National University Hospital of Iceland.
