technological innovation in financial services
FINTECHNEXT is a multi-million euro, four-year collaborative research programme between University College Cork and Fexco, supported by Science Foundation Ireland to deliver applied and funded research dedicated to disrupting 3 key fintech verticals: Treasury & FX, Digital Taxation, and Corporate Asset Administration.
The FINTECHNEXT research programme will focus on three key high potential industry verticals.
"Technology is significantly transforming and disrupting the financial services ecosystem. We need to invest in collaborative research projects, such as FINTECHNEXT, to give Ireland a competitive advantage in emerging technologies. This ambitious project aims to drive real opportunities here in Kerry and is an excellent example of how investing in innovation will support higher value jobs in our rural regions."
"Fexco will enjoy a dual benefit from this project, the first is the opportunity to be at the forefront of identifying new trends and technologies that could create new markets for our business and the second in welcoming a team of world-renowned research experts to the organisation. Fexco’s staff, including myself, stand to learn a huge amount from them."
"UCC is Ireland’s leading university when it comes to industry collaboration and this outstanding partnership with Fexco contributes towards developing a world-leading fintech sector in this region and nationally. This is a great example of the way the public and private sectors can invest together in innovative research with potentially valuable commercial applications."
"I am delighted to join Fexco and UCC in launching FINTECHNEXT. Fintech is an important and rapidly growing industry sector and it’s particularly gratifying to see FINTECHNEXT based in rural Ireland. Transforming how we deliver financial services like digital taxation, treasury and asset administration requires innovation from our excellent academics and collaboration with expert industry partners, like Fexco. I wish the UCC researchers and industry partner Fexco every success with this exciting venture."
