Greenland Science Week is a multi-disciplinary Arctic science platform that facilitates dialogue and cooperation for Greenlandic and international research, business, management and citizens, and it is right around the corner! From 1-7 November, it is in Sisimiut and Sarfannguit where Arctic science will be celebrated in combination with the World Heritage Festival. From 8-14 November, Nuuk and Kangerlussuaq (7-9 November only) will be the center of Greenland Science Week with the Research Festival and the Arctic Research Days conference.
The Research Festival is a festival where we celebrate Arctic research in a creative, accessible and diverse way. Through science talks, research images, science cinema and a variety of events arranged on participants’ own initiative, Greenland Science Week facilitates a collaborative and artistic platform to connect and learn from the work of citizens, managers, students, artists, scientists, policymakers and many more. The Research Festival is an open and free event for everyone interested in Arctic research. Some activities require registration at the organizer of the event.

Arctic Research Days conference
At the Arctic Research Days conference (9-11 November), we aim to foster dialogue around scientific advances, knowledge sharing and networking activities across various disciplines in the Arctic. Participants who register for the conference will be at the heart of Arctic research networking and will get the opportunity to take part in dialogues with senior and junior researchers, policymakers, and international scientists about potential research ideas, collaborations, topics or funding scenarios.

Greenland Science Week is mostly a physical event that takes place in the above-mentioned cities, but some of the Research Festival events can be attended digitally. On the online Research Festival program on the website, you can find out which events are of interest to you and how you can participate.
