GRÓ-LRT six-month training programme 2020 rescheduled for 2021 due to COVID-19

The GRÓ-LRT six-month training programme, scheduled to initiate on 16 March, has been rescheduled for March 2021. Given the serious developments and the many uncertainties regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unfortunately not able to initiate the training later this spring. The candidates invited for the 2020 training will be invited to attend the six-month training in 2021 instead.

Effect of COVID-19 on GRÓ-LRT six-month training programme

Last weekend, twenty professionals from Africa and Asia were expected to arrive in Iceland to attend the GRÓ-LRT six-month training programme. We had planned to launch the 2020 six-month training on 16 March, but in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the training had to be postponed at least for the coming weeks. Here in Iceland, as in so many countries around the globe, authorities have taken measures to address the threat stemming from COVID-19. In Iceland, all universities and colleges have been closed and a ban on public events and gatherings has been imposed from 16 March until at least 13 April. Whether we will be able to run this year’s training programme later this spring remains uncertain. This will depend on how things evolve in Iceland and around the world regarding the outbreak.
