The Data Analytics Prize

CGFI is supporting the Data Analytics Prize as part of the Climate Investment Challenge (CIC).

The Prize is looking for students’ creative ideas to utilise existing climate and environmental datasets to improve the adoption of climate finance.

Ideas may help to integrate transition or physical climate risk into financial decision-making or develop novel green financial instruments. This can include the use of weather data, climate models, geospatial and satellite data.

The winning team will be awarded £5,000 and CGFI support to further develop the solution.
