FinTech has huge disruptive power over the conventional Finance sector, who are constantly seeking ways to innovate faster, deliver at scale and with high impact.
The goal of FinTech Fusion is to strengthen the international competitiveness of the Irish Financial Services Industry through the production of new results from cutting edge Financial Technology research. The research will be led by the ADAPT Centre and includes researchers from two other existing SFI research centres, Insight and Lero, along with industry collaborators.
Globally, the financial services industry is experiencing an era of tremendous change in platform-based modular, data-intensive and capital-light business models. For ADAPT, this represents a new strategic priority for digital customer engagement research. The ADAPT Centre has assembled a strong new partnership of scientists and engineers from academia and industry to collaborate on a range of targeted projects. The motivating factors and critical research questions that will be addressed fall into three categories covering PayTech, RegTech and InsureTech.
The ADAPT Centre is driving the FinTech research ecosystem in Ireland, spearheading the development of next-generation fintech technologies.
