      • Ocean Hackathon® 2020: more than 570 participants in 11 cities around the world

      • This edition brought together more than 570 participants in 11 cities simultaneously: Ancona, Boulogne-sur-Mer, Brest, Cadiz, Cartagena, Deshaies, La Rochelle, México, Split, Saint Malo and Toulon. This figure is up sharply from last year, with 350 participants in 8 cities, despite the health context.
      • In Brest, hosted by the Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Brest (ENIB), nearly 110 participants in 18 teams worked in person on the school's premises in Plouzané or remotely via videoconference and chat, in a studious but relaxed atmosphere. To carry out their projects, they were accompanied by 22 coaches from Ifremer, Shom, the European University Institute of the Sea (IUEM), Brest Business School, Ocean DataLab, Technopôle Brest-Iroise, Météo France, Village by CA, CLS Group and many others available in Brest but also in France and Europe for all the teams in the 11 cities.

        On the afternoon of Sunday 11 October, each team pitted the results of its cogitations and technical developments. Due to limited capacity, the results were broadcast live on the Twitch streaming platform.

        Et le gagnant est...

        All the teams received a prize, but it was also necessary to choose a winner who will go to the final, in competition with the winners from each other city.

        The winning team of the Brest edition worked on the challenge Marine Analyst: Integrated Spatial Planning of the European Seas led by Pascal Derycke, business analyst & data scientist at the Virtual Village :

        "We participated in Ocean Hackathon because some of us who have already participated in hackathons find it a unique and exciting time. Over a weekend, we get out of our professional sphere to create and innovate. We share our skills. We enrich each other. At Ocean Hackathon, there are only winners. We loved following the challenge presentations. We experienced this hackathon as a game; a game that produces innovation. »

        The "Marine Analyst" team is composed of 5 people who participated in Ocean Hackathon® from Normandy: three members of the laboratory Ressources Halieutiques de Port-en-Bessin (Jehanne Rivet, Thibault Cariou and Laurent Dubroca), as well as Pascal Derycke and Claudia SchlagenHauf from the association le Village Virtuel.

        Marine analyst view

        This project aimed to implement a maritime activity planning module for the European seas. The integration of maritime planning is the continuation of the work started by Jehanne during her Master 2 internship that she did this year at Ifremer supervised by Thibault and Laurent. This collaboration follows a previous hackathon (Copernicus 2019 hackathon in Estonia), during which the team worked on the theme of climate change and designed the "Marine Analyst" (first runner-up).

        The Marine Analyst simplifies and aggregates access to marine data made available by the various European portals (EMODnet, Copernicus, IUCN, ICES, etc.). To this access, the Marine Analyst integrates a complete and open analytical system. The objective is to create added value to individual information in order to respond to societal and environmental issues related to the marine domain.

        In addition to the recognition brought by this victory, this hackathon made it possible to consolidate the tool and identify the material needs to perpetuate the Marine Analyst while keeping its societal and associative dimension: free and open access, responding to societal demands through rigorous and transparent analytical and scientific approaches.
