Is a student competition aiming to provide practical solutions to the energy problem linked to maritime transport.
The contest, which invites participants to design and build boat prototypes that are as efficient as possible, calls for thinking in terms of industrial applications and encourages innovation in imagining the boats of the future.
Students from engineering and naval architecture universities compete in the “Student” category, while professional and non-professional teams can register in the “Open” category. As a unique international platform dedicated to these specific challenges, the Hydrocontest is a true incubator of talents and technological innovation which is growing, edition after edition. Through this programme, the Hydros Foundation wishes to help the most promising projects see the light of day within a few years.
After several months of preparation, all registered teams meet up during a one-week event to race their prototypes and discuss techniques and ideas, allowing the entire Hydrocontest community to leverage this unique technological and human experience.
