In April 2018, the 6th PEMA Student Challenge question was announced, marking the official launch of this year’s competition. With a strong focus on reducing the environmental impact of ports, teams were tasked with drawing on existing technologies to propose a sustainable, yet economically competitive solution.

Entries were received from the University of Hamburg, three teams from Hamburg University of Technology, two teams from King Abdullah University and two teams from Blekinge Institute of Technology


Having qualified through the first stage of the competition, the top three teams now have just over one month to develop their original concepts to a complete proposal to present to the TOC Europe general assembly at the live final.


Following finalists’ presentations, the judging panel, comprising industry experts, journalists including Vincent Champion from WorldCargo News and prominent industry figures, will review each proposal according to innovation potential, practicability, and academic value with the overall winning team collecting the €1,000 prize money.


The University of Hamburg is the current holder of the PEMA Student Challenge prize.


This year’s live final will be held on 14th June at 12:00pm in the TOC Seminar Theatre. It is free to attend for all delegates, speakers, visitors and exhibitors.


The judges are: Ivan Deosdad (NOATUM Ports); Vincent Champion (World Cargo News);
Lamia Kerdjoudj-Belkaid (FEPORT); James Khan (Port Technology International); Lorene Grandidier (Cavotec); and Rebecca Jeffrey (Greenport).
