What is The Explorer?
At launch The Explorer is a digital showroom. Over time it will become a global matching service where international companies can find Norwegian solutions to their problems.
Let’s say that the city of São Paulo is upgrading its public transport system and is looking for zero-emission water shuttles.
In Bergen, a cleantech startup is prototyping a small electric ferry. Their CEO has registered their solution in The Explorer. This makes it easy for the public procurement officer in São Paulo to find what she is looking for.
With the help of The Explorer, Norwegian green and sustainable solutions can reach a wider audience.
Spirit of The Explorer
From Nansen to No Isolation, Norway’s heritage is the spirit of exploration: To extend frontiers, driven by curiosity, learning from everything we encounter.
In the same spirit, wouldn’t it be great if people all over the world could explore the best solutions for their needs – all at the touch of a button?
The Explorer presents a wide variety of workable solutions. These may be small, large, complex, simple, inexpensive or expensive. Some may be available for shipment immediately, others may need further development and adaptation. The need and opportunity for innovation is vast for the foreseeable future.
