Some testimonials ....
"An inspiring environment where the connection with the academic world is enhanced by exploring new ideas and solutions with a friendly and constructive attitude. Intelligence Hunt is the perfect stage for brainstorming real problems and bringing concrete contributions to the shipping industry. By taking part in the last phase of the #IntelligenceHunt3, I have been inspired and surprised by the amount of new ideas and productive approaches the different teams have brought to the table. The enrichment of the cluster was tangible and I am already looking forward to hearing what the next edition will bring." Blasco Majorana, Line Manager, Finnlines Plc
"Intelligence Hunt 3 was my first case competition. That was very well organized and perfect event for gaining knowledge about maritime industry. It started with two months full of work with our case and ended with one magnificent day. Through all that time we never felt lack of information nor support. The topic was Industrial Internet of Things and Sustainable Shipping. On the reason that I´m studying port and shipping management, it was an ideal opportunity for me to get to know several successful shipping companies and hear about new solutions in shipping industry." Annabel Kreed, Bachelor, Estonian Maritime Academy
"I have had the privilege to take part in #IntelligenceHunt2 & 3. Working with the student teams have been stimulating with new fresh ideas and the possibilities they bring.
The cases we have shared have been challenging to say the least but the standard of solutions presented have been top class with definite business opportunities.
These have been well-organised events giving us a chance to meet the future prospects in the shipping industry."
Phillip Tipping, Director Customer Innovation, MacGregor Sweden AB
"Through this compettition i understood what the real teamwork means. In past i did most of work by myself but after intelligence hunt i see that in team is possible to reach much bigger results than by individual work. This event also showed that if people from different countries will work together in one direction they can solve any problem. Intelligence hunt is not just a competition. It's opportunity to not just show your own skills but to develope yourself through international experience exchange."
Vladimir Syropyatov, Student, Bachelor, Admiral Makarov State University of Maritime and Inland Shipping, Case Wärtsilä, Team ERA
"Last year I participated in the #IH2 in Helsinki. The whole concept of the Intelligence Hunt is really unique and an exclusive possibility for students to get in contact with the shipping industry. What I really liked about it was the very practical approach and the fact that I was working on a real case with actual background material which covered a current issue. To work close together with the case company and exchange ideas with them was really inspiring.
I joined the #IntelligenceHunt3 this years as well, because I think that this unique project is something a maritime engaged student should´t miss. It is a unique opportunity to work together with students from different countries and different backgrounds and learn that all this diverse input together makes the final result outstanding!"

"Seafocus has been able to provide students and practitioners with a viable platform to both network and find common grounds to collaborate on scientific research related topics related to the maritime industry. I had the opportunity to engage in conducting research with some of the students who took part in the intelligent hunt competition. Since the research investigation is still work in progress, the students from the DFDS have been able to equip and sharpen their scientific research skills set by working with me and I see this as a massive boost for them to go on the scientific research ladder. Since, the research paper embodies both scientific and practical angles of analysis, this has helped the students to find the synthesis between academia and the real business world. The engagement has been extremely positive and their contribution is valuable too and I hope the next Intelligent Hunt competition, I can capture some synergies to collaborate with some of these students."
