Njord - The Autonomous Ship Challenge is a unique, international student competition, where participants are tasked with designing and building an autonomous ship. Teams are then invited to bring their vessels to the Trondheimsfjord, where they will compete in a series of challenges and events.
The competition is held by and for the students, where our goal is to inspire innovation and smart solutions within marine autonomy, as well as creating a platform for personal development and networking.
In Norway we believe we are in a unique position to push the boundaries of autonomous shipping, further marking ourselves as a world leading maritime country.
Trondheimsfjorden is currently the world’s first technological playground for autonomous vessels, both traveling above, on and under the water surface.
