The Arctic Technology Centre, Artek, was established in 2000 to educate Greenlandic and Danish engineering students in Arctic technology and to conduct research and innovation. Through courses and conferences about the Arctic environment, Artek contributes to the building and spreading of knowledge about Arctic technology. Research is one of the most important activities at the Arctic Technology Centre. The ambition is to promote research based on the needs and wishes of the population and conducted in close cooperation with relevant partners in Greenland. Initially, research will cover engineering aspects of the three main fields: building and construction technology, the environment and natural resources and energy generation.
