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

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