DTU offers research-based knowledge and technology development to private enterprises as well as public authorities operating in the Arctic.

Technological solutions tailored for the Arctic region is often a necessity, since solutions that work well in lower latitudes, does not necessarily work in the Arctic.

DTU has many years of experience in the Arctic. The university has a strong presence in the Greenlandic society, partly because of the DTU campus in the Greenlandic town Sisimiut where engineers focusing on Arctic Civil Engineering are being educated.

DTU conducts several activities in the Arctic, and even some in Antarctica.

DTU’s Arctic research activities include the following main areas:

  • Buildings and Energy
  • Climate Change Monitoring
  • Cold Climate Constructions and Physical Environment
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Oceanography
  • Planning, Sustainability and Infrastructure
  • Sustainable Exploitation of Arctic Resources
