Ocean Hackathon® – 48 hours to decode the sea

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.

Boulogne-sur-Mer in 2020

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.

The organisation of Ocean Hackathon® consists of three phases:

  1. the call for applications from cities,
  2. the call for challenges from natural or legal persons,
  3. registration allowing the constitution of teams.
