Arctic Workshop on Research

Invitation for Hindsgavl Arctic workshop 13 –  14 December 2021


Having reached the other side of the Covid crisis we now look forward to gather Arctic researchers and stakeholders to the annual Hindsgavl Arctic Workshop at Hindsgavl Slot, Middelfart Monday 13 –  Tuesday 14 December 2021. The workshop is arranged by Aarhus Universitet, Aalborg University, Technical University of Denmark and University of Copenhagen and this year hosted by Technical University of Denmark.


The Hindsgavl Arctic Workshop has always formed an important platform for the Arctic research community, universities, authorities and relevant organizations as a place for networking, sharing of information, getting inspiration and seeking opportunities for new collaboration across disciplines. The program of this year puts even more emphasis on utilizing these opportunities by strengthening activities facilitating interdisciplinary networking between the early career and established researchers and scientists. To support this approach, the organizing committee of the Hindsgavl Workshop has recently extended its members with representatives of the Association of Arctic Early Career Scientists in Denmark (APECS Denmark). APECS will provide the perspective of early career scientists to the broader field of Arctic research.


To reach out further into the Danish Realm’s Arctic research community, the Hindsgavl Workshop will be converted into an event in the English language from now on. We hope that this will make the workshop more accessible for foreign Arctic researchers in Denmark.


Highlights of the program:

  • Two days with a strong focus on knowledge sharing and interdisciplinary networking. A special emphasis will be to facilitate networking between early career researchers and the established research community.
  • Inspiring keynote speakers bringing new perspectives on Arctic Research and developments in the Arctic.
  • Poster presentations and speed talk presentations of early career researchers and established researchers showcasing the spectrum and possibilities of current and future Arctic research and research collaboration

    Cross disciplinary sessions on key topics of relevance for Arctic research:
  • Arctic research contributing to green transition in the Arctic
  • Increasing interdisciplinary collaboration and networking across scientific levels within Arctic Research
  • Strengthening the synergy of shared logistic research infrastructure and databases – exemplified through GIOS, Isaaffik and INTERACT III, supported by the recently established International Arctic Hub.
  • Social events, mingling and entertainment with quizzes, poster sessions, ect.
  • Panel dialogue with invited guest speakers presenting their view on the main political, societal and research oriented challenges, needs and tendencies, showcasing the overall development framework of Arctic research.

A detailed program will be announced in October.

The event is open now for registration. Sign up before 1 November 2021.
