Transportation Design Challenge in Norway- Spend a week in Norway solving a challenging transportation problem- fully funded, cash prizes.
About the challenge: The UW’s Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics Center (SCTL) and PacTrans, along with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) are sponsoring a design challenge to support the seafood industry. Ten UW students will be selected for a fully-funded trip to Norway to develop innovative solutions to improve the transport of seafood on two economically critical routes- by Skjervoy north of Tromso in arctic Norway and on Froya west of Trondheim in central Norway- with the winning team receiving a cash prize.
Background: The ability to sell fresh seafood to international markets is an important contributor to the Norwegian economy. Because this product loses considerable value if delayed, the reliable operation of Norway’s transportation infrastructure is critical to the seafood industry. Mobility is a challenge because Norway is a rugged northern country with many bottlenecks including constrained right of ways, ferry routes, narrow tunnels and bridges as well as severe weather and rural areas with limited technology and infrastructure.
