The 2017 competition is organized by the University College of Southeast Norway in close cooperation with the sponsors of the event.
The town of Horten has a long history of shipbuilding and a strong technical maritime industry that started with establishing the Horten naval base in 1818. Demand for technical skilled workers led to the start of a technical and practical school in 1855 that later merged into the University College.
