The coming months see The Explorer venturing into new markets to showcase the best of Norway’s green technology. At Blue Opportunities in London and Sustainable Seafood Security in IJmuiden, The Explorer will present ocean technology from Norway to European companies.

Since The Explorer's international launch at the Greentech Festival in Berlin in May, companies from around the world have been able to sign up and find green technology from Norway.

Now, The Explorer will present green technology from Norway at ocean-themed events in the Netherlands and the UK. This offers a great opportunity for Norwegian companies to reach new markets.
