What is Extreme Exploration?

  • Extreme exploration attracts and drives the innovation in our applied research network in cost efficient way. This approach provides value in solving challenges such as; lack of new ideas, no „fresh“ minds & out-of-the-box thinkers, creativity gaps, Breaking silos, cuttingedge ideas and transfer.
  • It is an approach to explore together with very few selected universities and institutes deeply a very few selected scientific domains which are extremely far away from anything existing globally, complex, literally unexplored and futuristic.
  • But – with very strong (business) impact. It is about being at the cutting edge what is not tomorrow, but day after tomorrow.
