    About the bootcamp

    The bootcamp hackathon means three days of stimulation for those with big ideas or those who develop and design very well! Each day from 9am til 6pm you can dive into a mind-boggling wealth of data and get started to create the next maritime application, develop new solutions, conceive new business models or use cases based on one of the chosen topics included in the Open Sea Lab data competition.

    Use,  re-use and combine archived and near-real time open marine data and observations from the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) , get support from different experts including marine data specialists, developers, experts in business modelling, pitching coaching etc.. and use their expertise to build or shape up your idea. Work together with your team and spend your time wisely, because this deep brain bootcamp is not for ....You will be amazed how fast your progress will be with all the support you'll get.

    To enroll for the bootcamp you can pair up with friends or colleagues who share your opinion and have skills that differ from yours.

    Going solo on this one? No worries? There will be plenty of time and opportunities to partner up with someone with complementary skills but the same interest in Open Sea Lab. We will make your match!
