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

        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 made available by local, national and international providers.

        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.



        In 2022, 12 teams from 12 cities and towns participated in the Grand Finale. The winning team was from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and won €5,000. The second team from Toulon (France) was awarded by €3,500 and the last one from Cape Town (South Africa) won € 2,000.

        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.


        Who can apply?

        In each town or city, the event is organised by an Adviser, which is a body chosen during the call for hosts. We at Campus mondial de la mer coordinate and support Advisers throughout the process.

        You work in the marine, digital or innovation sector, organise Ocean Hackathon® in your town or city!

        They organised the event in 2022:

        Klaipeda (Lituania)

        “Ocean Hackathon® interested us because it is a different kind of hackathon - a hackathon where solutions are based on data. This event brought us a new experience of working in a big consortium for the common purpose of gathering specialists and experts from different fields.”

        Erika Zavackiene
        In Klaipeda first local event
        Nouméa (France)

        “The Ocean Hackathon® is a great opportunity for the city of Nouméa and New Caledonia to make Caledonians aware of the uses of data and its importance for innovation. Moreover, this technological tool allows the
        public to work on issues related to the marine environment which is our immediate environment. To be redone!”

        Guillaume Terrien
        Nouméa has run two local events

        Santiago (Chile)

        “Ocean Hackathon® is a real opportunity to demonstrate that digital innovation can address solutions to global problems, and that it is possible to create links between different disciplines and countries to defend the oceans and the environment.”

        Olivier Piraud
        Santiago has run two local events
