11 February 2021, the Minister of Defence, Trine Bramsen, presented a broad political agreement on investments in new capabilities in the Arctic region. Also, the US looks into Greenland and foresees new defence related investments. At this virtual seminar, we will discuss the need for new capabilities, how the new capabilities will support civil society and how to involve Greenlandic and Danish companies in the construction phase as well as the daily operations.
