Ocean Hackathon

Access the French version



Bring your own expertise, share your ideas, imagine innovative solutions, design new digital tools, develop your network, get access to unexploited data, learn more together coached by experts... and enjoy a friendly week-end!

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 simultaneously in eight cities, from 11th to 13th October 2019

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