Climate Research Centre
The Greenland Climate Research Centre (GCRC) is concerned with the expected impacts of climate change on Arctic marine, limnic and terrestrial environments and on Greenlandic society, including adaptation and prevention strategies. The centre was established in 2009 in collaboration between the Commission for Scientific Research in Greenland (KVUG), the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and the University of Greenland.
The centre is located at the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources in Nuuk, and will be collaborating closely with a number of Danish and international universities and research institutions in a range of research projects. The centre manages research funds, which, through completion of research projects, are to contribute to increasing knowledge of climate, nature, technology and society in Greenland. Permanently situated in the Arctic, the Greenland Climate Research Centre has a number of advantages, the primary one being the possibility for year-round fieldwork supported by modern facilities and logistical support. The centre forms an integral part of the Greenland society as one of the aims of our extensive range of established on-going multidisciplinary research and monitoring programs is to investigate how society can be better prepared for climatic change.
As part of the climate centre team our employees thrive in the spectacular natural beauty of the Arctic nature coupled with the personal scientific freedom offered by the centre for creativity and innovative ideas to explore how the complex natural ecosystems work together. Through the flexible nature of the centre and our staff passion towards their work, we hold a strong position at the forefront in climate research.
