Greenland Science Events and stakeholder meetings

Do you want to inspire, educate, and connect with the broader community? Or do you want a chance to mingle and network with other conference participants? Then Greenland Science Events is for you.

At Greenland Science Events the stage is yours. You decide the content of your event, its location, and its target audience. It could be a lowkey get-together for the scientifically minded, a lecture on popular science for the citizens of Nuuk, or a session with animals meant for children. It’s all up to you.

Your unique science event during Greenland Science Week

Once you have set a date, arranged a location, and have a short description/theme of your event ready, we can add it to our program. The program will be disseminated through our social media-channels as a Greenland Science Event and hopefully, it will attract the desired audience.

The events should be planned for Monday or Tuesday November 6th and 7th or Friday and Saturday November 10th and 11th. To add your event to the overall program, register your Science Event no later than October 10th via this form. We look forward to receiving your Greenland Science Events proposals!

The same is applicable in case you are planning stakeholder meetings. We appreciate, if you inform us about planned activities in the registration form for Greenland Science Conference.

7-9 NOV

Greenland Science Conference

Nuuk

Under the theme "Making Science Matter", this year's Greenland Science Conference takes inspiration from Greenland’s National Research Strategy 2022-2030. The strategy, entitled Research – the Road to Progress, defines the vision of the Government of Greenland for the development of research in Greenland and outlines four main goals: 

  • Research must be anchored in Greenland. 

  • Research must support sustainable societal development. 

  • Research results must be easily accessible to all. 

  • Research efforts must be at an international level.
