Ocean Hackathon® – 48 hours to decode the sea

Ocean Hackathon

Teams worked non-stop for 48 hours in response to the challenge of producing an innovative project that included a demonstrator and used the varied marine and maritime data provided.

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 resultant 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.

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, with events held simultaneously in seven French locations – Brest, Champs-sur-Marne, Cherbourg, Dinan, La Rochelle, Sète and Toulon – and one in Mexico.

Ocean Hackathon® is supported by five French national bodies with an ambassadorial role – Ifremer (French Institute for Ocean Science), Shom (French hydrographic and oceanographic service), Agence Française pour la Biodiversité (French Biodiversity Agency), Cluster Maritime Français (French Maritime Cluster) and Cedre (French accidental water pollution centre).

Ocean Hackathon® is organised in three stages:

  • Call for applications from cities,
  • Call for challenges submitted by private individuals or bodies, and
  • Registration of participants who will make up the teams. 

You too can be part of this dynamic event by hosting it in 2020!
