Invent, innovate, improve

Statoil launched an exciting new public website on January 10 called Statoil Innovate. It is aimed at attracting new ideas from companies, research institutes, academia and interested members of the public, to develop new and innovative technologies.

Published: 14 January 2011
For Statoil, technology and innovation have always been the keys to commercial success. As a technology-driven company we understand the importance of having access to - and the courage to use - new and innovative technology in order to reach our goals.
Anyone can submit a general idea on any aspect, but the site will also feature a number of specific challenges asking for dedicated solutions. The first challenge is about sub-basalt exploration. Submissions on this first challenge must be in by February 20 2011. Further challenges will follow, addressing important issues at hand. More information can be found at Statoil Innovate.
In addition to launching challenges the portal is informing about Statoil's seven main technology focus areas and giving information on the benefits from developing new technologies in cooperation with Statoil.
There is an unlimited supply of good ideas out there. What's your idea?
