ABOUT THIS 6TH EDITION OF OCEAN HACKATHON®
The Ocean Hackathon is organized by the Campus Mondial de la Mer. Their mission is to bring next-gen leaders, entrepreneurs, advocates, mentors, and partners together to create solutions for the largest challenges facing our ocean. This hackathon aims to bring out innovative maritime products and services.
Over one weekend (November 5-7, 2021), teams in 16 cities will take up challenges on how to protect the
oceans and promote a sustainable maritime economy.
For this 6th edition, 171 challenges were received and 132 selected. Their objectives? To better understand and promote the oceans and to rethink the uses for a sustainable maritime economy. If some subjects are universal (pollution, preservation of biodiversity, awareness, etc.), others are more closely linked to the specificities of a territory. Among the 132 challenges, the most present themes are (in decreasing order):
- Marine sciences
- Pollution (plastic, invasive species, chemical)
- Fisheries and aquaculture
- Harbours and coastal environment
- Navigation, Sailing and Diving
- Awareness to maritime education
You can discover all these challenges in the online Catalogue.
People from various backgrounds are encouraged to take part in the 122 challenges available across the world. To tackle these challenges during the 48 hours of the Ocean Hackathon®, the challenge owners are looking particularly for team members in:
- Data analysis, Geomatic, IT, Machine learning, UX, Web design
- Ecology, Marine Biology, Oceanography
- Economy, Geography
One winner from each city will be selected to participate in the Grand Finale, which will take place in December 2021 in Brest (Brittany) France.
