Hackathon 2023

Ocean Hackathon®: data, an event and an international community

Ocean Hackathon® 2023 is an Ocean Decade activity.




Ocean Hackathon® is a non-stop, 48-hour event during which teams develop a prototype and reflect on its use. This must be based on marine data. A call for challenges is launched a few months before the event to identify projects on which the teams will compete in each of the participating towns and cities. The event weekend culminates in the selection of the top team, who will compete at the Grand Finale in Brest, France in December 2023 and could win one of the prizes donated by our Ocean Hackathon® Ambassadors.

Since it was first launched in 2016, Ocean Hackathon® has brought together a new community around the ocean and digital environments. Originally based in Brest, it was extended in 2019 to other venues in France and beyond.

Ocean Hackathon® is an initiative by Campus mondial de la mer which encourages sharing, the use of new digital technologies and an entrepreneurial spirit. The resulting projects enhance the value of marine and maritime data, often by repurposing it. Data providers focus their efforts on improving data accessibility and comprehension and are involved in coaching participants throughout the event.

About our Ambassadors

The Ambassadors perceive the sea as a field of innovation that must be appropriated but also made known and protected. They see in our approach a tool for the emergence of projects and the opportunity to create an international community whose source of inspiration is marine data. They are national and international in scope, and some are data providers. They are by our side and award the teams on the podium of the Grand Finale.
