In recent years, there has been a massively growing interest in excavating oil and gas as well as mining of minerals and rare metals in Greenland. This means that large investments are required in new technologies to be developed for e.g. deep sea oil and gas excavation and mining in arctic conditions. This also entails an increased demand for patent protection of these technologies. At HØIBERG we have experienced an increased interest in obtaining patent protection in Greenland and receive numerous inquiries concerning the legal situation concerning patent protection in Greenland.
