North Atlatnic Producers Organisation in cooperation with the Faculty of Management of the University of Gdańsk, the Faculty of Oceanography and Geography of the University of Gdańsk and the University of Akureyri School of Business in Science in Iceland undertook to organize the second edition of the scholarship competition, with the aim to support Polish students intending to study at the University of Akureyri under the Scholarship Program Erasmus.


The event inaugurating the PISCES (Polish Icelandic Scholarship - Exchange Studies) competition with the participation of representatives of the Honorary and Program Council of the PISCES Competition took place on October 24 at the Faculty of Management of the University of Gdańsk.


An unquestionable attraction of the inauguration itself was the opening lecture of a special guest, Captain Zbigniew "Gutek" Gutkowski, one of the best sailors in the world, a participant of single-handed sailing races around the globe,i.a. Vendee Globe or Velux 5 Oceans Race. "Gutek" gave a lecture entitled Impossible is nothing and thus encouraged students to pursue their own dreams and plans.


Students of the Faculty of Management  and Faculty of Oceanography & Geography at the University of Gdansk will be able to apply for three annual scholarships in the amount of EUR 5,000 each (the total prize pool is EUR 15,000), and the condition for participation in the competition is:


  • the status of the ERASMUS + scholarship holder at the University of Akureyri
  • submitting a competition application together with writing a paper on "Climate change impact on global fisheries revenues."
  • presentation of the above work before the PISCES Program Board
