The purpose of the workshop was to exchange information between Nunavut, Greenland, Canada and Denmark about geology, mineral resources and geoscience. The workshop forms a natural part of the pursuits to build up geoscientific competences in both Nunavut and Greenland profiting from common traits of culture and climate.
Days were loaded with interesting presentations from both sides of the Davis Strait and included an excursion to Godthåbsfjord. Many of the scientific discussions built on material from the presentations. Afterwards the options and possibilities for scientific cooperation were discussed, as well as exchange of experiences with administration and competence building in Nunavut and Greenland.
The workshop was arranged by chief consultant Kisser Thorsøe, GEUS Nuuk, firstname.lastname@example.org and chief geologist David Mate, Canada-Nunavut Geoscience Office, Iqaluit, David.Mate@NRCan-RNCan.gc.ca.
