We are excited to announce that the first-ever Njord - Autonomous Ship Challenge will take place in August 2021, and will be fully digital! This will allow teams from all over the world to step up to our challenge. The competition will culminate with the teams being invited to Trondheim to meet each other, witness their own simulations in real-time, and ultimately crown the winner!
