What feeds your curiosity?

It took knowledge, curiosity and imagination for Norwegian scientist Kristian Birkeland to revolutionize food production and save millions from famine in 1905.

However, our planet is still facing overwhelming challenges, and innovation is crucial to tackling them. That is why we are launching our Open Innovation Challenge, asking you to help us with new ideas.
