An amount of DKK 10.1 M is available for the period 1 November 2012 – 30 April 2014, provided the Danish State budget for 2012 is approved.
Applications cannot exceed DKK 1.0 M.

The Climate Research Centre in Greenland is attached to the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and has a core staff consisting of a Head of Centre and an administrative department. In addition, a social science unit will be established at Ilisimatusarfik/University of Greenland. Projects funded by this pool are expected to contribute towards establishing a research environment in Nuuk.
