The Icelandic Research Centre for Innovation and Economic Growth (RNH, Rannsoknarsetur um nyskopun og hagvoxt) is a think tank which seeks to explore how innovation and economic growth are either encouraged or stifled. A special emphasis is on research of the ways in which free individuals can by spontaneous co-operation, free trade instead of commands, satisfy their needs and improve their lives.
RNH focuses on four major research areas:
- Taxation and the Distribution of Income
- Natural Resources and the Environment
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Victims of 20th Century Totalitarianism
