The 2nd edition of Ocean Hackathon will take place on November 17th - 19th, 2023 in Kuala Lumpur. The winning team from our local edition will take part in the international Grand Finale in Brest (France) on December 19th.

This year, 12 amazing challenges heavily relying on the use of marine and maritime data have been selected for you! All of them aim at improving our understanding and knowledge of the ocean and rethinking the way in which we relate to our oceans! They are related to marine science, conservation and protection of the ocean, pollution, climate, sustainable fishing and aquaculture, ports and the coastal environment, ecotourism, safety and security at sea, etc.
