Students of the Split Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture Win First Place and Prize of HRK 10 000 at 1st International Innovation Fair INTER INNOVATION 2016!

The 1st international innovation fair, Inter Innovation 2016, held at the Medena hotel from 06 - 08 May 2016, featured 23 innovations from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. According to the opinion and the criteria of the expert jury, the three most successful innovators received prizes in the amount of HRK 3,000.00, HRK 6.000.00 and HRK 10,000.00.
The initiator of the event and member of the expert jury, Nenad Končar, Ph.D., thanked all the participants for taking part in the first innovation fair and expressed his wish that they meet again next year, at the same venue, where they will again have the opportunity to demonstrate their innovativeness and creativity.
The first prize in the amount of HRK 10,000.00 went to a team of naval architecture students of the Split Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, who presented their two advanced ecological vessels, Swath and Hydrofoil.  According to their idea, the Swath is a heavy-lift vessel intended for industrial purposes, that is, the transport of larger quantities of cargo, whereas the Hydrofoil is a low-tonnage vessel intended for recreational use, with airfoil-shaped wings and a hull which planes above water level while the hydrodynamic buoyancy of its underwater wings supports the entire ship.
Both vessels have a reduced free surface, which reduces the wave-making resistance.
The second prize in the amount of HRK 6,000.00 went to Branko Miličević from Bosnia and Herzegovina. He presented his invention - the smart ecological thermal plastic greenhouse whose height is variable, depending on the temperature of the air and the plant species and growth - to the committee and the general public.
Hydraulics is used to lift or lower the smart plastic greenhouse, depending on the weather conditions. The heat sensors deliver an impulse to the hydraulic pump, which in turn delivers an impulse to the cylinders for lifting and lowering the plastic greenhouse. The pump functions on the principle of injection, by drawing in and pushing out oil.
The third prize in the amount of HRK 3,000.00 went to a member of the Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ivan Miličević from Posušje, for the innovation called Permanent Honeycomb Base, i.e. a wax foundation, in beekeeping terms. The honeycomb base is divided on both sides into hexagonal foundations, in which the bees can build cells faster and more easily.
The base is made from biodegradable material, one-hundred-percent wax, corn seed membrane dough and nearly one-hundred-percent calcium carbonate. The advantages of such a base are its permanence, renewability, conformance with all the environmental and alimentary standards, and the fact that it reduces the costs of beekeeping by 30 % and increases the yield of honey by 6 kg per hive, as well as eliminates the need for the hard work of wiring.
All the rewarded innovations are based on the use of renewable sources of energy, which enables the reduction of production costs.
