Did you miss the kick-off of the Open Sea Lab Competition? We have it covered for you

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.

Sit-back, relax and watch the entire kick-off event!

Open Sea Lab: is it a hackathon, a bootcamp or a competition? ‘Well actually it is all of those things’, said Dimitri Schuurman (imec Living Labs) launching the kick-off event.

After a set of presentations describing the themes of the hackathon, the why to apply and the how, a panel composed by different experts dealing with open marine data has inspired the participants and those watching the webcast discussing what are the current challenges and barriers with open data and, in particular, giving examples of how this open data can generate added value both for the private and public sector.


We remind you that the applications to the hackathon close on 16 October 2017.
