FRIDAY 20 MARCH 2020
09:00 – 11:30 Training Pilots
The participating teams are guided by maritime professionals. Instead of mentors, we call them Pilots (sounds better, right!). The Pilots are briefed about the innovation methodology used during the Shipathon. Moreover they are trained in facilitating the innovation process and receive the best tips and tricks!
11:30 – 12:00 Registration participants
12:00 – 13:00 Lunch and networking
13:00 – 14:30 Welcome and challenges
Our Challengers dare you to come up with an innovative solution on a challenging case on one of the three topics: Ocean Power, Maritime Intelligence, Healthy Seas. The Challengers inform you during their key-note presentation!
14:30 – 15:00 Team Up Game
We encourage individual participation, instead of team-participation. The Shipathon stimulates teams formed by people with a different background and expertise. By playing an energetic Team Up Game we make sure that your team is balanced and ready for hacking the mile! By the way: This is also a nice way to meet innovators like yourself.
15:00 – 15:38 Meet your Team
15:38 Start the Nautical Mile
Now it’s team for the real work. You have 18 hours and 52 minutes to create, innovate and have fun while doing so! During the Nautical Mile several Ice Breakers are scheduled: Fun and inspirational breaks that inspire you and serve as an energy boost as well.
During the night you can get some rest. We do offer a basic place to sleep, nothing fancy though. If you do want to work through the night, you can!

07:00 – 08:30 Breakfast
08:30 – 09:00 Opening day 2

There is still some time left, but in only 90 minutes your team will pitch your solutions in front of other competing teams and a professional jury.
10:30 – 12:00 End of the Nautical Mile & Start semi-finals
For each challenge there is a separate semi-final. The pitches are judged on a) creativity and innovation, b) relevance, c) feasibility and d) presentation. Make sure you rock, since only two teams can make it to the grand finale!
12:00 – 12:15 Coffee break
12:15 – 13:15 Grand Finale
The six best teams, two per challenge, will pitch their innovative solution for the entire audience. Only one team per challenge will be awarded with a prize. Exciting!
