ECN has decided to build on the work of its Scientific Work Group by convening an international research network of research centres and institutes with a focus on crowdfunding, alternative finance, fintech and the various financial innovations and technologies arising in this space such as blockchain and distributed ledger.
Organisations join the FinTech Research Network ECN as ECN Strategic Member. We envisage this route to European level networking, research collaboration and dissemination of findings to be primarily of interest to university based academic research groups and institutes but are also open to discuss membership with corporate teams focused on business analysis in the crowdfunding and fintech space. To discuss membership please contact the ECN Office or send an email directly to email@example.com
