            The Office for Science and Technology at the Embassy of France in the United States based in the Consulate General of France in San Francisco, in collaboration with the Sustainable Ocean Alliance will organize the Ocean Hackathon®’s 6th edition 2021 in the bay from November 5th to 7th 2021!

            Who are we?

            The Office for Science and Technology  at the Embassy of France in the United States is a network of 22 team members at the Embassy in Washington, D.C. and in 6 other consulates in the US including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Their main missions are to promote French science and technology, strengthen scientific and technological French-American partnerships, promote exchanges of students and researchers through various specific funding programs and support innovation and deeptech startups resulting from academic research.

            Sustainable Ocean Alliance (SOA) is a global nonprofit organization based in California. SOA develops leaders, cultivates ideas, and accelerates solutions to the ocean’s greatest challenges. Their programs are aligned with the targets of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 14 to conserve the ocean and sustainably use marine resources.

            Hosting the 1st edition of the Ocean Hackathon® in San Francisco is a great opportunity to work jointly with local and international communities interested in data and the ocean and innovation for a more sustainable ocean!

            About the Ocean Hackathon®

            Ocean Hackathon® is a 48-hour challenge that aims to address the ocean’s greatest challenges by enhancing the value of marine and maritime data through innovation.

            • Call for Challenges - April 7 to June 6
            • Opening of registration for participants - September 6 to November 4
            • 48h Ocean Hackathon® - November 5 to 7
            • International Grand Final in Brest, France - December (date to be specified)

            Call for Challenges

            Before opening registrations to set up teams, we need challenges!

            If you have an idea or a more mature project that aims to solve ocean challenges using data, we would love to hear from you. Submit your challenge by filling in the form below and you may have the opportunity to see your project selected for this 2021 edition in San Francisco.

            A challenge should be related to the sea and its preservation, be innovative and require working on data. Providing data in addition to your challenge is a bonus. You can submit your challenge as an individual or a legal entity. If your challenge is selected, you will be able to support your team during the Hackathon weekend as the owner of the challenge and the expert of the area!

            We’ve created an interest form to allow members of our community to submit preliminary interest either as a partner, challenge, or participant. This will act as our top of the funnel and give us a location that we can channel people to as we engage in conversation to ensure they stay up to date.
