A research study in collaboration with Ministry of Finance, Directorate of Transport, Icelandic Maritime Administration and Government Construction Contracting Agency. The life span of this study is 2-3 years. The outcome will be a forecast model to project risk and a set of guidelines to improve decisions, planning and progress tracking of public funded projects.
As part of this study, but though stand alone project,  a benchmark analysis is conducted on seven large energy and construction projects regarding disciplines of Risk Management in the planning and execution of projects. This will establish the gap between applied practices (as is) and best practices (to be).
A research study in collaboration with Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Arctic Portal and IASC on the economical possibilities of Iceland, and other locations in the North Atlantic, due to increased industrial activities at the east coast of Greenland and the west coast of Russia and Norway. This will lead to increased maritime activity in the North and the forming of new strategies and forecast models to evaluate the econmical possibilites and threats dervived from the melting of the ice cap in the Arctic Ocean. The life span of this study is 2-4 years.
