Greenland Science Week - Polar Research Day Nuuk December 4 2019

Invitation to Greenland Science Week 2019 in Nuuk

The Arctic research conference, Polar Research Day, will be held in Nuuk on December 4 2019. Up until now, it has been a conference arranged in Denmark, but from 2019, the conference has found a permanent home in Greenland among the Greenlandic research community and public.

Alongside the one-day conference, several additional science events are planned and organized, so that the conference, a public outreach day, themed workshops, seminars and networking activities make up what we call Greenland Science Week. 

This presents a unique possibility to meet and network with a broad range of researchers, business community, government employees and society in an Arctic context, and we hope to see participants from all disciplines in discussions of Arctic science in relation to Greenland. The program is still under development as are the themes for the various workshops and seminars being planned. This website is the official gateway to the Greenland Science Week and Polar Research Day conference, and will be updated continuously.

Preliminary overall program for Greenland Science Week:

  • Monday December 2 Workshops/Seminars/Networking activities
  • Tuesday December 3 Workshops/Seminars/Networking activities
  • Wednesday December 4 Polar Research Day Conference
  • Thursday December 5 Public Outreach Day and networking activities
