Hackathon 2023
Local edition in Noumea (France)
Nouméa, Nouvelle-Calédonie

The 8th Ocean Hackathon®: from 17 to 19 November 2023

Join a team and tackle a challenge!

Take part at Ocean Hackathon® and enjoy a stimulating experience as you work as a team to develop solutions that meet the challenges of today and tomorrow!

For the 8th edition of Ocean Hackathon®, over 90 challenges have been selected by the organisers of the 15 local events, which will all take place over the same weekend, from 17 to 19 November 2023. The winning team from each city will take part in the international grand final in Brest (France) on 19 December.


The challenges put forward by owners on a personal basis or on behalf of their organisation (research centre, company, local authority, association, etc.) aim to improve our understanding and knowledge of the ocean by rethinking the way the sea is used. In this way, they are working towards a sustainable maritime economy. These challenges incorporate marine and maritime data.

The main themes of the challenges are marine science, conservation and protection of the ocean, pollution, climate, sustainable fishing and aquaculture, ports and the coastal environment. But also ecotourism, raising awareness of the sea, safety and security at sea, spatial planning, navigation (sailing, diving, etc.), detection of objects at sea and the circular economy.

A catalogue of challenges is available to filter and search for the challenge that suits you best in the city in which you want to take part.
