Our Fintech Symposium will, together with University of Copenhagen & DIKU Business Club, bring together the world’s top fintech researchers, giving you access to groundbreaking research directly applicable to companies in the industry. Historically, inventions and innovation have always been rooted in deep research knowledge and the Fintech Symposium will make sure that fintech industry leaders and top researchers together can collaborate to make sure we build greater things, to provide as much societal value as possible in the shortest possible time.

This year we focus on secure next-generation blockchain technology, which is why we have brought to you the highest level of researchers working within real-world applications of blockchain technology. The compilation and depth of speakers have probably never been seen before.

Before we dive into the future of secure blockchain technology, we will have a panel debate between top minds within AI, a true strong point for Danish universities.

Anyone with an interest within the area of valuable business applications with strong research behind it is guaranteed benefit by joining us this day.

Join us in a true paradise for researchers’ created business applications, June 17th at the Celebration Hall of the University of Copenhagen.
