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

Congratulations to Jesse van Haasteren, team Codecrackers from Universiteit Leiden in the Netherlands for winning our 2021 global Qlik Academic Program QlikWorld Datathon!

Back in February Qlik launched a Datathon, a challenge to help develop solutions towards achieving the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. We invited Qlik Academic Program students from across the globe to use Qlik software to develop data and analytic solutions for the global challenges we face including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Students were able to design their solution based on the challenge objectives and three finalists were announced in April. During the three-day event, QlikWorld Online participants had the opportunity to watch presentations by each of our three Datathon challenge finalists and then vote for their favorite. The votes are in and team Codecrackers was chosen as the winner! Read here for more details about team Codecrackers and their journey. If you were unable to attend QlikWorld Online, it is not too late to watch the Datathon presentation. 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 Jesse!
