The Nordic Fintech Research Symposium

Every year Copenhagen Fintech in collaboration with researchers from Danish Universities, organizes a Research Symposium in connection with the Nordic Fintech Week. The Nordic Fintech Symposium is supported by Copenhagen Fintech as part of the “National Position of Strength programme for Finans & Fintech” funded by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

The Symposium is intended to bridge gaps between academia and industry, fostering a vibrant exchange of ideas and insights for the benefit of the Danish fintech community. It joins together both Danish and international researchers plus industry experts and it thus a valuable platform for knowledge exchange, networking, and initiating new collaborations.
