The Arctic Technology Centre, commonly called Artek, was formally established in 2001 to teach and provide in-service training for Greenlandic and Danish students and businessmen in Arctic technology. Artek also runs courses and seminars about Arctic conditions and contributes to research into Arctic technology. As a forerunner to the centre, various courses have been held about Arctic conditions over the last couple of years. The centre will be run by Sanaartornermik Ilinniarfik (the Building and Construction School) in Sisimiut and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Kongens Lyngby. In financial terms, Arctic Technology Centre is considered a DTU department with all the ensuing potential sources of revenue dependent on the number of students (the valueadded scheme). During the start-up phase, other grants will be made available by the Greenland Parliament and the Danish Ministry of Research and Education. The set-up phase – especially equipment and refurbishment expenses - will cost approximately DKK 14 million, DKK 6 million in Greenland and DKK 8 million at DTU. The funding will come from the Greenland Government and from private foundations.
