About Arctic DTU


Arctic DTU represents DTU's Arctic and Antarctic interests in numerous national and international fora, networks and projects on interdisciplinary Arctic research and education.

We collaborate across research institutions, enterprises and authorities supporting Arctic research diplomacy.

DTU has a long tradition of Arctic research, innovation and education across various research fields. Arctic DTU creates synergy across DTU and across DTU Lyngby and DTU Sisimiut, Greenland.

By pooling Arctic research competencies at DTU, we work within the four pillars of Arctic research at DTU: climate change, a green transition of the Arctic, surveillance and digitalisation.

Arctic DTU manages and develops Arctic DTU Campus and Arctic DTU Research Station in close collaboration with the Government of Greenland - Naalakkersuisut, Department of Education, Culture, Sports and Church.

Arctic DTU Campus Sisimiut hosts DTU's Arctic educations and has the status of a Greenlandic University.

Arctic DTU Research Station holds Arctic research facilities, infrastructure, resources, and services available to the scientific community to conduct top-level Arctic research in their respective fields.

Further, Arctic DTU is a partner in INTERACT. In this network, we work actively together on Arctic safety and security across the pan-Arctic research stations.
