ASSP – Autumn semester

During the autumn semester, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen and Aalborg University teams up with the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources to offer two full semester packages:

1. Environmental management and society (30 ECTS)

2. Environmental contaminants and climate change (30 ECTS).

All courses are graduate level.

 

Environmental management and society

1. Bioprocessing in the Arctic (5 ECTS)

This course is offered by Aarhus University with teachers from Aarhus University, Aalborg University and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

Is YOUR aim to work with industries processing sustainable products designed for the future – then join this course. Participation in this course will give YOU an insight in producing high value products from marine biomasses for a global marked. The course will give YOU a fundamental understanding of technologies and industrial processes for conversion and refining of biomasses like algae, fish and shrimps residues into products. The course will give YOU insight and experience in identifying the potential high value products of industrial biomass processing and in the technologies for refining biomasses. Through working on cases from North Atlantic companies, YOU will learn to characterize biomass material, select processing technologies, develop conceptual process design and carry out a cash flow analysis of the production. The course takes place in Nuuk.

For more information, please see “How to apply“.

2. Applied Economics of Arctic Natural Resources (10 ECTS)

This course is offered by Copenhagen University with teachers from Copenhagen University and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

This course will provide YOU with a thorough understanding of economic reasoning and knowledge of how to apply economics as a decision-making tool in the utilization and management of marine and terrestrial natural resources, including fisheries, hunting and mining, and other uses of land and sea, such as agriculture and tourism. The theoretical parts will be illustrated with case material relevant for Greenland and interactions with local stakeholders in Greenland. The course takes place in Nuuk and involves field excursions in the Nuuk area.

3. Environmental governance in the Arctic (10 ECTS)

This course is offered by Aarhus University with teachers from Aarhus University and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

The course gives YOU knowledge which can be used to analyze policy processes and policy instruments within environmental governance in the Arctic. As part of this, the course will give YOU knowledge on the basic principles and problems within environmental economics.The theoretical parts will be illustrated with case material relevant for Greenland and interactions with local stakeholders in Greenland. The course takes place in Nuuk.

For more information, please see “How to apply“.

4. Mineral resources in the Arctic (5 ECTS)

This course is offered by Aarhus University with teachers from Aarhus University and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

The course gives YOU knowlegde which can be used to assess the environmental impacts of natural resources extration in the Arctic. As a part of this course YOU will be able to suggest relevant technologies to prevent and mitigate environmental effects with special focus on Arctic conditions. The theoretical parts will be illustrated with case material relevant for Greenland. The course takes place in Nuuk and it follows the blended learning model.

2. Contaminants in the Arctic - impact on climate, health and nature (10 ECTS)

This course is offered by Aarhus University with teachers from Aarhus University and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

The course gives YOU the knowlegde of how contaminants end up in the Arctic either from local sources or through transport from mid-latitudes. YOU will also learn what effect contaminants have on nature, climate, wildlife and human health with focus on present state. The course takes place in Nuuk and involves fieldtrips in the Nuuk area.

For more information, please see “How to apply“.

3. Contaminants in a changing Arctic - modelling impact on climate, healt and nature (10 ECTS)

This course is offered by Aarhus University with teachers from Aarhus University and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources.

The course gives YOU the knowlegde of how contaminants end up in the Arctic either from local sources or through transport from mid-latitudes. YOU will also learn what effect contaminants have on nature, climate, wildlife and human health. The course will give YOU insight and experience in describing the effects from future changes in climate and human activity in the Arctic using hand-on models. The course takes place in Nuuk and involves fieldtrips in the Nuuk area.
