Innovation, marine litter, cooperation in the Mediterranean, all target areas of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) call to foster a "Sustainable Blue Economy" across Europe, which will be launched at an Info Day on 9th November, 2017, in Brussels.
On the 22nd of September the Startup Village in Antwerp hosted the kick-off meeting of the Open Sea Lab Competition. More that 40 entrepreneurs, scientists and data enthusiasts attended the event. Did you miss it? Sit-back, relax and watch the entire kick-off event!
All the details about the hackathon will be described during the kick-off session taking place on 22 September 2017 from 16:00 to 19:00 CEST. The event will be webcast. You can watch it at www.opensealab.eu/stream.
Applications will soon open for the EMODnet Open Sea Lab bootcamp, 15 - 17 of November 2017 in Antwerp, Belgium.
The three-day bootcamp hackathon offers you the chance to play with archived and near-real time marine open data to create prize-winning innovative applications in one of three thematic areas: Marine Environment, Blue Economy and Public Knowledge or Services.
One of the unique features of EMODnet globally is the multidisciplinary nature of the data that it aggregates and makes available. The EMODnet thematic sub-portals create data layers and products ranging from information on physical oceanography to seabed habitats to human activities. However, users increasingly want to work across disciplines and visualise or combine these multi-thematic data layers.
Are you excited by the potential of open marine data? Join us at the 1st EMODnet Open Sea Lab to explore EMODnet's open marine data! During a three day open data bootcamp from 15-17 November 2017 in the vibrant port city of Antwerp, Belgium, we will ideate and co-create innovative solutions to unique problems using EMODnet’s wealth of marine data and ocean observations.
