World Maritime University (WMU) is involved in a EU-H2020 funded research project, namely CHEK (deCarbonising sHipping by Enabling Key technology symbiosis on real vessel concept designs) and the project is holding a student competition in 2022. The competition aims to promote research on green ideas in shipping transportation, connect students with the maritime industry and raise public awareness about the needs and developments in decarbonising shipping.

WMU would be grateful if you could support us to further disseminate this Call for the Student Competition through your communication channels. The Call for the Student Competition can be found at the project’s website

CHEK is funded by the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 framework programme, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping by using innovative technologies working in symbiosis. The project commenced on 1st June 2021 with a duration of three years. It is coordinated by the University of Vaasa and the consortium consists of the trend-setting marine equipment manufacturer Wärtsilä, two of the largest shipowners/charterers worldwide (MSC Cruises, Cargill International), four SME technology providers (Climeon, Hasytec, Silverstream, BAR Technologies), a classification society (Lloyd’s Register), a ship designer (Deltamarin) and the WMU.
