On Thursday, September 17, theDOCK hosted the Finals Virtual Event for its Maritime Autonomous Systems Challenge which was sponsored by thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (tkMS) and ATLAS ELEKTRONIK. The event culminated a best practice 3-months screening project in search for excelling startups addressing ATLAS’ declared needs and challenges.
More than 100 startups applied to participate and went through a screening process by theDOCK. 26 were found relevant and referred to ATLAS for further evaluation. ATLAS team of experts shortlisted the 8 finalists that demonstrated an inspiring use case out of which 4 were ultimately invited to the Bremen headquarters to discuss pilot and potential commercial relations.
