Last year, over 200 students and 75 teams took part in the 2017 Queen’s International Innovation Challenge – people registered from around the world with the goal of improving global food security. Students will put their analytics skills to the test as they identify and solve a problem relating to global agriculture, nutrition, and sustainability. The top 5 teams will be invited to the finale in Toronto on November 24 and split a combined $40,000 in prizes.

This competition is jointly sponsored by Queen’s Smith School of Business, SAS, and the Centre for Advanced Computing.
