Lombard Odier has supported Hydros, the Swiss maritime, sporting and innovation programme, since it was formed in 2010. Our Firm acts as a main sponsor and partner of the Hydrocontest, which tackles issues linked to energy efficiency in maritime transport and brings together top universities worldwide.
This year, over 250 students were involved in preparing for the competition and were working hard on the 50 prototypes expected this summer on Lake Geneva. More motivated than ever, almost all of last year’s teams have re-entered the contest, mainly composed of new members taking over from their predecessors, while 11 new universities are joining the adventure this year. 26 teams are representing 12 countries from Europe, Asia-Pacific and South America, including 5 nations participating for the very first time.
Rendez-vous on the lake Léman in Lausanne, from 24 to 31 July 2016.
