Organisation profile

DTU has more than 100 years of experience in Arctic and Antarctic conditions.

All this experience is being combined in Polar DTU, an interdisciplinary centre that brings together the knowledge and research from departments and centres from all over DTU.

The purpose of the centre is to make all of DTU’s research, know-how and new technologies available to private enterprises and international authorities operating in the Polar Regions. This guarantees the provision of research-based services that draw on the interdisciplinary knowledge of the departments involved. In addition to this, Polar DTU can call on a strong international network of research institutions.
