What’s in it for you? A whole lot of fun obviously!

You will learn how to quickly transform your ideas into validated concepts and present those convincingly at board level. Evidently, your personal network expands and everyone wants to pick your brain.

Make sure to claim your ticket and register now!


The hackathon is open for everyone, as long as you are 18 years or older. Since the challenges are related to ships, we would encourage everybody with a passion for salt water to register! Especially if you are:

  • A young professional working in the maritime sector
  • A student about to finish your study in Business & IT Management, Maritime Officer, Marine Technology, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, Game Development, Computer Science and Engineering, or other relevant study (university and college).
  • A professional working outside the maritime sector with a passion for ships and knowledge in data-management, modelling and programming.

Are you a student in another sector, but do you have particular interest in the maritime sector? Please don’t hesitate to register! The hackathon is open for everybody between 18 and 35 years old.


There are no costs involved. Participation is free. The only investment we ask of you, is your time and energy! All drinks and meals are included and we offer a place to sleep as well. Make sure to inform us in the registration on special requirements. Transport to the venue should be arranged by yourself.


We encourage individual participation, instead of team-participation. The maritime hackathon stimulates teams formed by people with a different background and expertise. After the kick-off on Friday we start with the Team-Up game. By doing so, we make sure that everyone is able to join a team and get started on ideation and developing a solution! By the way: This is also a nice way to meet innovators like yourself.

The hackathon is intended for generating and developing new ideas, on the challenges presented. It’s an ideal place to work on ideas which you are comfortable sharing with others. There are a lot of benefits, such as the feedback and collaboration you will receive when people and sponsors involved get excited about your solution.


Sign up now by filling out the registration form. Since we allow a maximum of 5 participants per company, we will contact you as soon as possible if more than four of your colleagues register.

About one week before the Shipathon we will send you further details and directions, no later than 31.10.18.
