Translated from

Naalakkersuisut has appointed external members to the new board of Ilisimatusarfik. The board is appointed for a four-year term and is ready to roll up their sleeves from 01 August. The board consists of 11 members, five of whom are staff representatives and six are external members appointed by Naalakkersuisut, for a maximum of two periods.

"The development of our society places increasing demands on our professional competences, where our young graduates are among our most important resources for a good and positive development. We are therefore looking forward to a continued positive development with contributions from Ilisimatusarfik.

I would like to thank the outgoing board members for their great and forward-looking efforts. Ilisimatusarfik has doubled the number of graduates in just about 10 years, and this testifies to the great effort that has been mustered.

I wish Ilisimatusarfik's board good luck, and with a mix of both re-appointed and new members, I am confident that the board will continue to ensure continuity in the work on the development of Ilisimatusarfik", Minister of Education, Ane Lone Bagger says.

  • Svend Hardenberg, CEO
  • Karsten Høy, CEO
  • Randi Vestergaard Evaldsen, purchasing manager
  • Suzanne Møller, former head of institute & pro-rector
  • Malan Marnersdóttir, professor
