With the aim of helping to develop knowledge in the fields of fintech and digital finance, Université Paris Dauphine-PSL and its Fondation, along with founding partners Mazarsand Crédit Agricole CIB, have created the Fintech & Digital Finance Chair.
Among the many questions raised by the emergence of financial technologies, and reflecting the digitalization of finance, this chair will focus on four main themes:
- the business model of digital finance and the role of finance-centered platforms and ecosystems (with a particular focus on the contribution of blockchain and cryptocurrencies);
- regulation, ethics, and cybersecurity;
- corporate financing, i.e. new marketplaces (e.g. crowdfunding) and new funding methods (e.g. ICO and tokens);
- and the sustainability of digital finance, as well as the ethical questions it raises.
A pool of high-level experts (researchers, science committee members, PhD students, etc.) is available to expand on these themes through three types of action: research, education, and promotion.
Stakeholders in the world of fintech will be invited to the chair's various activities so that they may foster reflection, share expertise, and contribute to various projects.
