The Campus mondial de la mer is France’s most prominent community of experts in the study and economic development of the ocean.A network of academic, scientific, economic and institutional stakeholders working across marine science and technology with a strong connection with the wider blue economy sector.
Among other things, it hosts the annual Ocean Hackathon at national and international levels, and this year there's something new!
Blue-Cloud as a data provider for the Ocean Hackathon 2022
Research organisations and administrations collect large volumes of data to improve knowledge and support public policies. The Ocean Hackathon is indeed an opportunity to explore the great potential of this data to address social, economic and environmental challenges.
Blue-Cloud is one of the data providers involved in the Ocean Hackathon 2022, providing access to the Data Discovery & Access Service, which features more than 10.5 million data sets from key marine data infrastructures across Europe. Users will also be able to use the dedicated Virtual Labs developed within the Blue-Cloud Virtual Research Environment, spanning a range of topics from biodiversity to fisheries & aquaculture, including plankton genomics and marine environment.
This year's Hackathon is taking place in 13 cities worldwide from 2 to 4 December 2022, the winner of each local edition will then come and pitch his.her project at the International Grand Final in early 2023.
