Since April 2022, Jill and Nathan, both Belgians, have been exploring the virgin lands of Greenland. They set themselves the crazy challenge of conducting a triathlon in Greenland that combines polar expeditions, kayaking and climbing over a period of 5 months, in complete autonomy.

With a strong desire to provide basic support for scientific research, the two Belgian friends quickly surrounded themselves with major partners. The Solvay group quickly joined the adventure and wanted to be a huge supporter of the project.

Nanuk arrived, in fact, through our invitations for projects, and so we learned about Nanuk through this request, this request. And right away, we were totally encouraged to support this project because, in fact, Nanok is the embodiment of what Solvay is for, which is to create connections with people, ideas, and items. So we can accurately reinvent the progress. Sonsoles Llopis Garcia develops.

Why did you participate in the Nanook project?

Jill and Nathan are clearly very likable. For Solvay, it was clear that we had to take part in this project, which is an extraordinary human challenge and an extraordinary scientific mission. We encourage the development and improvement of scientific knowledge and all that is an investment in extraordinary projects, that go beyond and seek out-of-the-box ideas. So for us, Nanook is a crucial role. We need them, we need these ideas. We need these inspirations and these ambitions. why ? For creativity and inspiration. To reinvent progress.
