Danish Polar Center - a helping hand to polar research
The Danish Polar Center is a knowledge and service center for scientists and institutions that deal with polar research and arctic matters, for Danish authorities, and for the Danish public in general. The Danish Polar Center is an institution under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and was established on 1 January 1989.
The center is organised in 3 branches: research facilitation, logistics and information services and is the secretariat for the Commission for Scientific Research in Greenland (KVUG). DPC runs a polar library, photo collection, an archive and houses secretariats for various institutions. The center co-operates with the Greenland Home Rule about science facilitation and dessimination of scientific information. The center resides in the restored cooper's workshop on the former Greenland Trade Pier in Copenhagen. We share premises with the Department of Eskimology and Arctic Studies and Arctic Institute.
