National Position of Strength programme for “Finans & Fintech” (2021-2024)
As part of the “National Position of Strength programme for Finans & Fintech”, Copenhagen Fintech developed a range of activities to support research driven innovation and cultivate long term strategic relationships between universities and knowledge institutions and companies in the financial and fintech sectors. The programme wants to support research driven innovation which benefits Danish companies and businesses.
In the next 4 years, we will develop a fintech network with people from research and various entrepreneurship departments, support bridgebuilding activities, collaboration and promote knowledge transfer between universities, knowledge institutions and businesses.
One key activity in this programme is an Open Call to scope and develop collaboration projects and hackathons between research partners and finance / fintech companies: the established companies, start-ups and SMEs. We will facilitate a process to create research projects and pilot projects together with the knowledge institutions. The success rate for approved projects in 2021 and 2022 have been above 50%.
Copenhagen Fintech, in collaboration and co-creation with the research institutions and industry, will support projects with the aim of finding the best ideas and solutions to relevant problems within finance and fintech. The research projects will directly promote collaboration between the various actors in the ecosystem and should lead to even more and larger cooperation projects without support from the cluster.
The project is funded by ‘Uddannelses – og Forskningsministeriet’ and runs for 4 years.
