Denmark proposes climate university

August 17, 2007

Denmark wants to create a climate university on Greenland that would specialize in research of the region.

Officials say they intend for the research center to be up and running in time for the 2009 U.N. Climate Summit in Copenhagen, the Copenhagen Post said Friday.

"It is the government's ambition that Denmark has a leading research center that focuses on the climate issue and global environmental problems," Science Minister Helge Sander told public broadcaster DR.

The facility, which would focus on the effects of climate change, would include up to 10 researcher positions, the newspaper said.
