Margin pressure is pushing Financial Services Industry to an accelerated consolidation path. Agile Fintech companies are tearing off parts of the traditional business using technology to provide better services for a fraction of the cost, thus destroying value in most cases. Banks are acquiring Fintechs to accelerate their own Digital Transformation. Everyone expects internet giants to land into this arena. With all this uncertainty, what will be the future landscape for this centenarian industry? Share your thoughts with the experts in our Digital Finance Networking Event. Also understand how EIT Digital collaborates with the European Financial Services Ecosystem to boost the technology-based innovation and make Europe a substantial contender in the competition for global relevance in that industry.

Through Networking Events, EIT Digital keeps on building a strong pan-European network around each Focus Area and Co-Location Centre in Europe, where entrepreneurs, industry representatives, engineers and researchers discuss challenges, perspectives, innovation plans as well as industry needs and technological solutions.
