    High Potential Opportunities (HPO) is a new demand driven export program where Team Norway at large (public business support institutions, ministries, embassies, business clusters and business organizations) will assist Norwegian companies to win big international commercial contracts (above 500 mill NOK). Together with Team Norway, Innovation Norway has a central role in finding, validating, executing and coordinating public support and assistance.

    What is an HPO project?

    An HPO–project is defined in two ways:

    1. The process of pursuing one big international contract abroad which represent substantial commercial market opportunities at least 500 mill NOK for the Norwegian companies or
    2. The process of pursuing investments which will lead to several contracts abroad which represent totally at least 500 mill NOK for the Norwegian companies involved

    All relevant players can seek, find and propose an HPO project, including Innovation Norway’s offices abroad.
