Hydrocontest 2016: let the journey begin!


The Hydros Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of pre-enrolment for the 3rd Hydrocontest, to take place next summer. Teams are invited to read the new official rules and to submit their full application packs by 15 January 2016.

Buoyed by the success of the first two contests, the repeat involvement of numerous teams and the growing interest that has been kindled, Hydrocontest is preparing to enter its third season in Switzerland. To enable the competition to evolve, the rules have been amended based on past results and the feedback from participants, partners and members of the organisation.


There will therefore be some major innovations for 2016: most notably, prize money will be awarded along with the trophies, the competition will be extended to non-university teams and greater importance will be attached to industrial applicability and environmentally friendly design. These changes will support the trend – which was already heading upward in 2014 and 2015 – towards top quality in the concepts and innovations presented by the participants to respond to the challenges of nautical and maritime energy efficiency.


Pre-registration forms are available in the Team Area of the www.hydrocontest.org website. The full rules and all the changes can be found in the Official Notice Board section.
If you require any clarification or have any general questions, we urge all past and future participants to join the Hydrocontest Community group, so that everyone can benefit from the invaluable exchanges between community members and organisers.
