As the Arctic's climate and biodiversity continue to evolve, understanding these changes is crucial.  The seminar brings together international experts and researchers to discuss three ongoing projects that shed light on the region's vital importance:

  • Learning from local and indigenous knowledge to understand fishery impacts and policy needs
  • Exploring the future perspective and societal impact of fjord changes in Greenland and the North Atlantic.
  • Documenting environmental change at the Davis Strait, the gateway between the Arctic and subpolar North Atlantic, and its impacts on southern Baffin Bay marine ecosystems

The seminar will be conducted in English, with Greenlandic translation provided. It's hosted by GINR in collaboration with international researchers from the ECOTIP, FACE-IT, and Davis Strait Observatory projects.

Location: Hotel Hans Egede, Aqqusinersuaq, 3900 Nuuk

Date: November 7th, 2023, from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM.

After the seminar, join us for a delicious seminar lunch from 12:30 PM to 1:00 PM. Limited seats are available, so to secure your spot and register in advance for the seminar and lunch, please contact Thomas Juul-Pedersen before October 1st. 

In the afternoon, from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, you are welcome to attend a workshop on "Priorities for Future Marine Research in East Greenland" (registration required). For details and registration for this event, please contact Søren Post
