EBA is looking for participants for 2 EBA Knowledge Fintech Hub events

The European Banking Authority (EBA) is currently seeking participants for two events organized in the context of the “EBA Knowledge Fintech Hub”.

The EBA recently created the “EBA Knowledge FinTech Hub” as part of its work on Financial Technology (FinTech) and financial innovation, so as to facilitate the exchange of information between national competent authorities, European Supervisory Authorities, incumbent and new entrant institutions, technology providers and other market players about FinTech.

In this context, the EBA is organising the following events: an industry roundtable on regulatory sandboxes and innovation hubs and a workshop on Cloud: implementation challenges and benefits.

Regarding the first event, the EBA will host an industry roundtable in its London premises on 3 September 2018 from 14:00-16:30. As set out in the EBA’s FinTech Roadmap, the EBA is carrying out a comparative analysis of regulatory sandboxes, innovation hubs and other schemes in the Member States so as to identify best practices in their design and operation. In view of this, the roundtable aims to obtain views from financial institutions, other FinTech firms and technology providers on the operation of the schemes. Any company that can help in providing insights on this topic can register to join this event at the following address before Friday 10 August 2018: https://www.eba.europa.eu/meeting-registration/invitation-meetings/2018/industry-roundtable-on-regulatorysandboxes-and-innovation-hubs.
