There can be solutions relating to health care, welfare technology, improved education systems and gender equality, for example. Snjallræði was founded by Höfði Peace Centre in 2018 and has been run three times since its inception. The growth space is managed by KLAK, in collaboration with MIT designX, and is the focal point of this workshop where MIT experts come to Iceland and share their knowledge.

The sponsors of Snjarllræðis are Origo, the City of Reykjavík, Landsvirkjun, Marel, Deloitte, the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Labour Market and HVIN.
