Bringing the Ocean to Society
11 Feb 2021
Ocean Hackathon® 2021
48 hours to decode the sea

Ocean Hackathon® is an initiative by EurOcean's Cooperative Member 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: the call for applications from cities, the call for challenges from natural or legal persons, registration allowing the constitution of teams.
