24 - 28 September, good partners from Aalborg University visited Ilisimatusarfik:

  • Henrik Halkier (Dean, Faculty of Humanities)
  • Mogens Rysholt Poulsen (Dean, Faculty of Engineering & Science)
  • Henrik Pedersen (Dean, Technical Faculty of IT & Design)

It was a very good visit - and focus was on:

  • Teaching cooperation and start-up of a new natural science bachelor's degree programme at Ilisimatusarfik
  • Presentation of Greenland-related education and research at Aalborg University (at AAU Arctic)
  • Aalborg University's introduction of the Digital Platform
  • Our current overall cooperation - and how we can improve it in the future
  • PhD cooperation
  • Plans and expectations for a Research hub in Greenland
  • Inter-institutional research cooperation
  • Aalborg University's experience with problem-based learning

During their visit, the deans also visited Greenland Institute of Natural Resources, Greenland's research council, and relevant companies and ministries - just as they talked to guest students from Aalborg University and of course also experienced our traditional annual celebration.
