Facts about GEUS

The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) is an internationally oriented, independent research and advisory institution established in 1888 within the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building.
GEUS carries out activities to exploit and protect geological resources in Denmark and Greenland. Primary activities are mapping, compilation and storage of data, research, monitoring and consultancy within water, energy, minerals and climate and environment.
The Survey carries out research and technology development in relation to administration of legislation in areas such as water resources, raw materials and the underground. It also undertakes assignments related to energy, minerals, water and the environment on a contractual basis for other public authorities, research agencies, private companies and clients outside Denmark.
GEUS is part of Geocenter Denmark - a formalised cooperation between GEUS and the Geocience institutes at University of Copenhagen and University of Aarhus.
In 2015, GEUS had a staff of approx. 300 of which approx. 200 hold a PhD or MSc degree, and approx. 50 PhD students and several MSc students are attached to GEUS for research training.
