The Greenland Perspective Thesis and Dissertation Library

Knowledge shared is knowledge squared. Therefore, we collaborate with alumni from a variety of universities and disciplines to offer you full text access to master's theses and PhD dissertations that explore aspects of Greenland covered by our theme packages: Green Land (GL) and Nation Innovation (NI). 

Most of them were submitted from 2010 onwards. While they all obtained a pass, information about specific marks is not available.

Click on the thesis/dissertation title for further details and abstract.

Disclaimer: The titles of the theses projects and dissertations have been translated from Danish to English where appropriate by the authors of this website. Many of the theses are in Danish, but they all have English abstracts.
