Participate in Ocean hackathon®!

Ocean hackathon® is a 48 hours non-stop event during which some teams imagine innovative use of ocean data. To do that, they will tackle challenges submitted few months before by natural person or legal entity.

Ocean Hackathon® is a unique opportunity to experience an idea around the sea by:

  • Access to a variety of digital data;
  • The presence of high-level coaches who supervise the teams all weekend long on various subjects: data understanding, programming, marine science and technology, business model, pitch art, legal expertise, etc;
  • The extreme motivation of team members from different backgrounds;
  • The friendly, studious but relaxed atmosphere of the Ocean Hackathon® community.


4th edition will take place in Brest (France) and simultaneously in other cities in France and Europe.

Save the date: 11-13 October 2019

Winning team designated in each city will pitch their project during the final contest in December in Brest (date to be precise).
