Inmarsat, Attica Group and Thetius have teamed to jointly launched the ‘Inmarsat Ferry Open Innovation Challenge: Crew Training and Entertainment,' a competition which inspired start-ups and SMEs to deliver digital solutions to enhance the training or enrich the leisure hours of seafarers. 

Applications are invited for solutions in four work-related areas: ship familiarization, regulatory training, emergency response and customer services – all of which must support content delivered in Greek, plus a fifth category for solutions serving crew leisure hours.

There is £10,000 prize money at stake, and the three partner: Inmarsat, the global satcom company; Attica Group, the Greek ferry operator; and Thetius, the digital currency provider offer support to implement proof of concept trials onboard a working ferry


  • The Innovation Challenge is open to initial online submissions until February 28th. For further details and to submit an entry please visit Ferry Open Innovation Challenge
