Between 22 and 24th of November an Copernicus Oceanhack hackathon will be organised in Tallinn. 8000€ will be divided between the best teams as well as numerous other prizes!
Do you want to change the lives of people living in the Baltic Sea region and win cash prizes up to 8000€ for that?
We invite you to work with an ocean of data without getting your feet wet!
Join us for the Copernicus #Oceanhack on 22nd to 24th of November in Mektory, Tallinn.
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR
The event is a gathering of data scientists, web/app developers, UX/UI designers, visionaries/space enthusiasts, marketing wizards and business developers, project managers and field experts.
Register as an individual (we’ll match you with a team at the pre-event) or as a team here: https://garage48.typeform.com/to/VRHzVJ
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR
Various approaches are welcome: create new solutions or add ocean-smart features to existing solutions. Propose innovative data visualisations for academic purposes or for raising awareness around the Baltic Sea environment and beyond. Mobile, web apps, platforms – it’s your call! We would particularly welcome imaginative projects using artificial intelligence or machine learning approaches.
IDEAS TO GET YOU STARTED
Create education apps that bring the oceans to life or improve ship routing. Find new ways of keeping an eye on the formation and extent of sea ice or identify plastic pollution hotspots. Go crazy and get creative with the marine data.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Be ready for a fun weekend long and intensive development event. Free food, drinks and support from international mentors will be available throughout the weekend. Transport and accommodation will be covered no matter how far you come from.
This is your chance to validate your idea and get the team together for the actual hackathon. At the pre-event we will validate your ideas and form teams for the Copernicus #Oceanhack. We’ll help you become familiar with the data sets and teach you on how to use the marine data and get you acquainted with the existing solution and apps to inspire you more!
