NGI Explorers – Meet the Explorers

‘Meet the Explorers’ is a new set of video interviews featuring innovators and researchers from all over Europe sharing their inspirations as they prepare for their expeditions to the USA through NGI Explorers.

In each ‘vlog’ the lucky Explorer – each of whom gets to spend three to six months researching and innovating in a US University, Organisation or Company – talks about their project. They discuss their motivation to become an NGI Explorer, why they want to work in a collaboration with the USA and they explain the added value of the NGI initiative for their professional career.
