This year the Qlik Academic Program hosted its first Datathon for students around the globe to leverage Qlik analytics software and public data to build solutions to help solve some of the issues at the heart of our current climate crisis in multiple geographies.
We received a large number of submissions from universities around the globe – more than expected – which made the judging process very difficult! We are overwhelmed by the response and are grateful for all students who participated, completing their submissions while also completing their semesters remotely. The dedication required to do so is truly inspirational, and Qlik and C40 Cities have identified real-world value and exciting ideas in every submission.
