The Data Analytics Prize

Discover the next generation of analytics innovation

The Data Analytics Prize is looking for students’ creative solutions which apply climate and environmental datasets to challenges relating to climate change and finance. The Prize is supported by CGFI as part of the Climate Investment Challenge (CIC) from Imperial College London.

Solutions may help to integrate transition or physical climate risk into financial decision-making or develop novel green financial instruments. The winning team will be awarded £7,000 and CGFI support to further develop the solution.

The 2024 winners will be revealed in the Climate Investment Challenge 2024 Finale on 18th June – register below to join us in London.
