In June 2018 the Club launched ‘Investing in a Safer Tomorrow’ a global safety competition open to those embarking on a maritime career both at sea and on shore. Teams of up to four were invited to propose an improvement to any element of sea safety – from developments in seafarer wellbeing through to a tangible invention to improve physical safety or navigation. The competition aims to foster new talent and harness the bright minds of tomorrow.
The competition was in two stages, in stage one entrants had to submit basic information of their concept and how it could improve safety in the industry. After assessment by our industry panel 10 entries were chosen to go through to stage two out of the 222 entries received.
In Stage two competitors were required to expand on their initial ideas and work them up into a full submission. The second round of judging will take place at the end of April.
The final three will be invited to the Gala Dinner in London on 4th July, after which the final 10 submissions will be available to view on the website.
