The Greenland Climate Research Centre is an internationally recognized research group and the contact point for building and anchoring knowledge about marine ecology and social science in Greenland, with a special focus on climate impacts.
In the strategy period 2015-2020, the Greenland Climate Research Centre is focusing on interdisciplinary research in processes and changes in the arctic marine ecosystem. We have a special focus on the effects of climate changes and the impacts and the needs in the Greenlandic society.
The Greenland Climate Research Centre is a department in the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources. We differ from the other departments in being an external financed research department.
We are linking The Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and Ilisimaturafik (Greenland University) through covering both natural and social sciences creating collaborative links between the institutions and disciplines. Through our educational activities, we are linking the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources to the other educational institutions in Greenland.
The Greenland Climate Research Centre receives annual funding from the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science. Every year, the GCRC manages to triple this amount of financial support by submitting applications to a long list of international and national funding agencies and private foundations. Major national funding agencies on this list include DANCEA and EAMRA (Greenland Environmental Agency for Mineral Resource Activities).
