On September 12th the official opening reception for Aalborg University’s new Arctic platform was held. The new platform is called AAU Arctic. At the opening reception, there were speeches from the headmaster at Aalborg University, Per Michael Johansen, chairperson of AAU Arctic, Dean Henrik Halkier and head of AAU Arctic, associate professor Anne Merrild Hansen.

AAU Arctic is a new platform that brings together collaboration research in the Arctic across faculties. The foundation for the establishment of the platform is precisely the interdisciplinary aspect where distribution and visibility is the goal.
The platform is furthermore a part of the newly established Arctic Hus in Aalborg, along with Arctic Consensus, Arctic Business Network, Arctic Education Network and Greenland Travel.
