Coming your way, the Qlik Data Revolution Virtual Summit. October 27-29. REGISTER

After  months of hard work building an application, judging by Qlik and C40 Cities, and two days of voting at QlikWorld Online, the Academic Program Datathon winner has been chosen!

Congratulations to Pauline Guillet, team DataGO from Université de Technologie de Compiègne in France for winning our first ever global Qlik Academic Program Datathon!

Back in February, Qlik, Qlik.org and C40 Cities launched a Datathon where Academic Program students from all across the globe used data and Qlik software to tackle and help solve some of the issues at the heart of our current climate crisis. Students were able to pick from five challenges and a winner was announced for each challenge. During the two-day event, QlikWorld Online participants had the opportunity to watch presentations by each of our five Datathon challenge winners and then vote for their favorite. The votes are in and team DataGO was chosen as the winner! Read here for more details about team DataGO and their journey. If you were unable to attend QlikWorld Online, you may access the event and watch the Datathon presentation by going to https://vshow.on24.com/vshow/Qlik_Virtual_Forum. If you are interested in participating in a future Datathon or would like to join our program, register today for the Qlik Academic Program and receive free access to our software, training and other learning resources!

Congratulations again Pauline!

Congrats to Pauline! I loved watching the students submissions at QlikWorld, each one was so unique and it was fun to hear from members from across the world!  I was impressed by their Qlik Sense skills, it looks like they all have wonderful analytics careers ahead of them!
