Rector Gitte Adler Reimer explains:

"Research ethics is about what is considered appropriate and inappropriate research practice based on a society's norms, values and culture. The development of the ethical guidelines will help cultivate a research culture that is accepted and supported by Greenlandic society."

The Ileqqussaasut project:

To meet the need for research ethics guidelines, Greenland Research Council launched the Ileqqussaasut project in 2020, which will gather input and make recommendations for the ethical guidelines for research in Greenland on a research-based basis.

The project will gather input and recommendations from citizens, research and educational institutions, the business community, the Greenlandic government, municipalities and other stakeholders in order to create strong ownership of the guidelines. Implementation of the guidelines will include the development of policies, procedures and educational material.
