As the world population continues to grow, and specifically in coastal areas, there is a related increase in the demand for mobility. Intercontinental flights are currently one of the main ways to connect, but we need a more sustainable
mobility solution for the future. How about a floating hyperloop?

Within the Blue Growth research project we are focusing on the application of a floating hyperloop concept to dramatically reduce
emissions related to long distance mobility. Hyperloops are expected to be a good lternative for high velocity passenger (and cargo) transport and are mainly being developed as a land-based solution.
