Open Sea Lab 3.0 hackathon

The Open Sea Lab Hackathon is a unique online event that brings together data and multidisciplinary scientists, software developers, social innovators, students and businesses in Europe and around the world. They are challenged to explore the wealth of open-source marine data from the new centralised EMODnet portal to develop solutions to major ocean challenges. The winners of this third edition of the hackathon will be featured at European Maritime Day on 30 March 2023 in Brest (France), where they will be treated to a thriving programme of activities and can enjoy expo, pitching and networking opportunities to showcase their talents and solutions to an international maritime audience.

Open Sea Lab 3.0 will partner with key EU data services, organisations and initiatives of Europe’s thriving Ocean data landscape. It is geared towards fostering community networking and promoting the development and uptake of innovative, science-based solutions using marine data. And that all in support of the EU Green Deal and the UN Agenda 2030.

The format and challenges of the Open Sea Lab 3.0 will be presented during a 3 week online “warm up” period starting on March 7, 2023 consisting in a series of online trainings by expert mentors and coaches. All sessions will be streamed live and made available online on the website afterwards. This is your chance to learn more about the hackathon and meet the organizers, some of the coaches and data providers.

The Hackathon is open to all, including technical and non-technical backgrounds.
