European Hyperloop Week
The European Hyperloop Week (EHW) is an international event that brings together the best university teams around the globe, challenging them to make the fastest, full-scale Hyperloop. The EHW is an initiative of 4 Hyperloop student teams; Delft Hyperloop, Swissloop, Hyperloop UPV and HYPED. The EHW is determined to challenge the participating teams to set more ambitious goals towards a full-scale Hyperloop and together, create a Hyperloop ecosystem. From the 19th until the 25th of July 2021, the first edition of the EHW takes place. During this week, the EHW will host various speakers from important parties in the Hyperloop industry and several Hyperloop competitions will be organized. Delft Hyperloop will compete in the following categories: Complete Pod Design Award, Propulsion Subsystem Award, and the Full-Scale Award.
Space X Hyperloop Pod Competition
To accelerate the development of the Hyperloop concept, SpaceX organized the Hyperloop Pod Competition, until 2019. In this competition student teams around the globe were challenged to design and build a half-sized Hyperloop pod, to travel through a 1.2 km low-pressure tube, built by SpaceX in California, United States.
