What is MarineTech?
MarineTech Hackathon will focus on the innovation, development and implementation of new and existing digital technology into the growing digitisation of the Maritime industry. We are focusing on needed solutions for SMART technologies, connectivity, ocean sustainability, exploration, and science within the deep wide big blue.
Maritime 4.0 is here and the marine world needs to accelerate the use of available digital technology to accelerate innovation in order to boost the marine industry. We are bringing together marine engineers, scientists, industry players, government bodies, researchers and technologists to work together. Innovation and resilience is key!
INTRODUCING THIS YEAR'S
How can we support design, engineering, performance, and activity, more appropriately? As the evolution of the industry is being enabled by the ongoing evolution of smarter and more deeply integrated machines, systems, data and people, what can be done to support this and make our journey into a smother voyage?
Can you re-engineer your thinking as well as your technology in unlocking new efficiencies with new attitudes?
How can we implement continually evolving technology that focuses on Information Flow, Satellites, 5G Maritime, Tracking and Services (ship tracking, port terminals & connected containers), Maritime Blockchains (digitalisation of the supply
chain & maritime insurance) , AI & Automation (progression towards the autonomous ship & optimising the logistics track) and Cyber Security protection against cyber-attacks & cyber threats?
Oceans of Opportunity
Approximately 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water; challenges still remain in reference to under water exploration and research.
Can you help to promote the further understanding of the underwater environment and to encourage the development of techniques and tools to explore, study and exploit the oceans?
How can we use the ocean, its tidal cycle and currents as an alternative source of clean energy? Capturing valuable data is essential. By using for instance sensors and IoT, how can we modernize the current practices for more optimized harvesting techniques that follow international laws, stopping pollution on at a large scale and enable surveillance? How can we utilse open platforms and blockchain technology?
