Engineering and naval architecture schools from all around the globe are rallying together to take up the Hydrocontest’s challenge for maritime energy efficiency. Following the closure of registrations and review of the applications received, this 3rd edition officially counts 26 teams representing 12 countries from Europe, Asia-Pacific and South America, including 5 nations participating for the very first time.
This year, over 250 students will be involved in preparing for the competition and are already working hard on the 40 prototypes expected this summer on Lake Geneva. More motivated than ever, almost all of last year’s teams have re-entered the contest, mainly composed of new members taking over from their predecessors, while 11 new universities are joining the adventure this year.
All are undoubtedly determined to stretch their creativity and inventiveness to challenge the past results from the first editions and push the boundaries of innovation to imagine and design the boats of tomorrow. The participants will soon be introduced in more details under the “Teams” section of the Hydrocontest website for more information on their members, their motivations and their projects.
Teams in bold are participating for the 3rd consecutive year.
