Qlik announces the finalists of the Qlik Academic Program Datathon! 

This year the Qlik Academic Program hosted another Datathon for students around the globe to leverage Qlik software and develop data and analytic solutions towards achieving the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These goals aim to address poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice, and more.  

We received submissions from universities around the globe. We are overwhelmed by the response and are grateful for all students who participated.

Our 3 challenge finalists include:

  • Jesse van Haasteren: Team Codecrackers from Universiteit Leiden, Netherlands
  • Dongsheng Yuan: Team Data&Dota from University of Liverpool, UK
  • Lok Hin Cheng and Hari Vignesh: Team Qlik Boom from University of Liverpool, UK
