Looking to the future: Why it’s time to invest in FinTech Research

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The financial services industry acknowledges the need for academics in the important FinTech field to fill the many new positions dealing with risk management, data mining, cyber security etc. Yet most companies are very hesitant to participate in research collaboration and long term development in new, not fully understood areas. Though the industry contributes with much innovation, very few organizations have their own research departments. Certainly, the research contributions known from biotechnology, medicine etc. are not reflected in financial services. If the best qualified academics get industry employment directly out of university it may impact research potential adversely. Research is important – not only in the long run but also for zero-day innovation, when conditions are suddenly right and can implement new knowledge very fast. Join us at the Arena on Wednesday June 6th at 16h to discuss “Looking to the future: why invest in FinTech Research” or share your greatest FinTech Research institute/article.
