Join the challenge!

The human race towards technological advancement led to reckless destructive actions.

Depletion of resources, pollution, climate change and waste generation reached a level that can no longer go unnoticed.

Imagine living in a structure that produces all the power it needs. One that makes the absolute best use of its surrounding light, weather conditions, and location, to be as energy efficient as possible, blending smart design, green materials, and emerging technologies for a maximum effect.

Imagine engineering something that can turn the tide. Imagine being one of the gamechangers!

Design an environmentally friendly, resource-efficient floating house.

GLO MARINE, the main organizer of the event, partners up with NAVA Ship Design office, to deliver an European Engineering competition for undergraduate naval architecture students.

Because we care

Alongside the Naval Architecture Faculty professors, we identified the need for students to develop a useful range of soft skills, practice teamwork and put their creativity to use.
We decided to do that in a fun, interactive environment, and reward them for it.
