PEMA announces Student Challenge entrants

Press Releases   •   Jun 05, 2017 09:36 GMT

The Port Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (PEMA) has announced the three finalists that will compete in the Association’s fifth Student Challenge, which will take place during the TOC Europe conference and exhibition in Amsterdam, on June 27-29.

The three teams are from Hamburg University, Hamburg University of Technology, and Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden respectively. This year’s theme for the competition is “Digital Transformation for Ports and Terminals”.

With operators increasingly focusing on digitalisation and the application of big data to improve operational efficiency in terminals, this year’s Student Challenge entrants will be required to “identify and define what are today’s main areas for port digitalisation and which solutions and now leading the market and why.” Teams will then present a business case based on real-life scenarios.

Following entrants’ presentations, a panel of judges made up of industry experts will review each proposal according to innovation potential, practicability, and academic value. The winning team will receive €1,000 in prize money.

As part of PEMA’s education outreach, the Student Challenge provides a stimulating way to expose students to the real business of the ports and terminal world, as well as to highlight university programmes and student talent to the ports business community.

This year’s Student Challenge will be held on June 29 between 12:30 and 2pm in the TECH TOC Conference Theatre. It is free to attend for all delegates, speakers, visitors and exhibitors. PEMA will also be exhibiting at TOC Europe, at stand B68.
