DDI Webinar : The role of data in global financial innovation
From Stephanie Peebles
It's full steam ahead for the Global Open Finance Centre of Excellence in Edinburgh - awarded a £22.5m UK Research and Innovation grant.
What will the Centre do? What exactly do we mean by open finance?
How can the Centre help governments, businesses and individuals make better economic and financial decisions?
Can it live up to its aim of "delivering social and economic benefit to all corners of the globe"? Will it be a "global economic observatory"?
Why is Edinburgh so well-placed to host the Centre? How will it combine the city's specialisms in both data and fintech?
What economic spin-offs for Edinburgh could be delivered by new businesses being created in the open finance space?
Why is it so important for the Centre to remain independent, neutral and ethical?
