EBA seeks participants for two events organised in the context of the EBA Knowledge FinTech Hub
The European Banking Authority (EBA) has 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:
a) Industry roundtable on regulatory sandboxes and innovation hubs
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 EBA will host an industry roundtable to obtain views from financial institutions, other FinTech firms and technology providers on the operation of the schemes.
This industry roundtable will be held in the EBA’s premises in London on 3 September 2018 from 14:00 to 16:30.
The EBA invites any firms that can help in providing insights on this topic to join this event. They can register at the following address before Friday 10 August 2018:
b) Workshop on Cloud: Implementation challenges and benefits
The purpose of this workshop, which will take place in the EBA’s premises in London on 17 October 2018, is to bring together competent authorities, cloud service providers and financial institutions to discuss the changes resulting from the implementation of the EBA’s Recommendations on Outsourcing to the cloud. Agenda and registration details to follow on the EBA website.
