Event – Creating World Class Fintech Innovations

On 11 June, EIT Digital and Fintech Scotland invite interested parties to a networking event, titled ‘Creating World Class Fintech Innovations’. The University of Edinburgh’s Business School is the venue for this half-day event focussed on the future of fintech in Scotland, and the opportunities for universities, corporates and start-ups within this thriving ecosystem.

EIT Digital is the leading European digital innovation and entrepreneurial education organisation driving Europe’s digital transformation. It recently opened its Scottish Satellite in Edinburgh to deepen connections with the Scottish innovation ecosystem and to intensify its relationship with the Scottish Private and Public Sectors.

The Edinburgh Satellite intends to host a new Doctoral Training Centre, with a focus on fintech, and Cyber Security via a new program supported by the Scottish Government’s Cyber Resilience Unit and ScotlandIS, plus other areas of national strategic importance. Its students will be supported by universities across Scotland with the first students expected to start later in 2019.

EIT Digital is one of eight Innovation Communities of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. It has 10 Co-Location Centres across Europe, including one in London, and the Scottish satellite was the first one to be opened in the UK.
