The Government of Norway has pointed out affordable (i) access, together with (ii) skills, (iii) regulations and (iv) inclusion as the four drivers for Norwegian Policy. We appreciate the four drivers for Norwegian Policy, and like to contribute to a discussion on how to achieve them.
Our hypothesis is that “Free access to the National Knowledge Portal” addresses all four topics access, skills, regulations and inclusion, as well as builds the framework for societal empowerment in development. Furthermore, the Portal would ease the implementation of Digital Public Goods (DPGs), and through the regulatory framework make the DPGs available for every single human.

- trusted information on education, health, agriculture, innovation
- data governance, and innovation through public-private partnership
- regulations as free access to the National Knowledge Portal
Starting from a hypothesis of “Free access to a National Knowledge Portal”, we see that the four priorities are well addressed:
- Access - by demanding the “free access” to the portal, access is put out as priority, addressing health, education, governmental information and other relevant information.
- Skills - adding digital health and education on the Portal, and making these universally available, we provide digital skills to everyone
- Regulations - demanding free access through regulations will enhance the conversion towards digital societies, an effect well documented through the freemium model used in other areas, e.g. apps for mobile phones.
- Inclusions - by regulations on free access, and by placing information spots in villages with free access to the portal we ensure that the two main hindrances “availability and affordability” are removed.
