Our Partners and Sponsors

We are very grateful for all the help our team receives, be it monetary or in some other form. Thank you to everyone who has helped us out.

We are always looking for partnership opportunities with those who share the HydroContest ethos of sustainability and efficiency within the maritime environment. In exchange, we are offering a extensive promotion at an event that represents the cutting-edge of marine efficiency and engineering amongst some of the best universities worldwide.


How does sponsoring us benefit you?

  • You would have the chance to recruit excellent engineering graduates from accredited courses.
  • The theme of the contest is ‘green transport’ and this could be associated with your company.
  • There are over 20 teams in the competition from all over the globe allowing us to represent your company on an international scale.
  • You can encourage STEM education.
  • As a team we can promote you across a range of social media and our website. After winning the communication prize in 2016, we have a fully developed social media presence: such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Youtube.
  • We will feature your name on the boat which everyone will see at the competition and at many outreach events.
  • Your company will be promoted at University Open Days, industry events and all of our Outreach events as well in the University of Southampton media channels and in the Staff and Alumni newsletter.
  • Your name will feature on our monthly newsletter! The newsletter will begin in January and will be released until after the competition.


Whether you can provide us with financial support or products and materials we would love to hear from you! Any assistance is greatly appreciated by the team!
