The new centre is spearheading cutting-edge research and innovation for the UK’s financial and technology sectors. Centropy will lead on external media relations, events, and policymaker outreach as part of a fully integrated campaign.
Welcoming the launch of the Centre, Minister for tech and the digital economy, Paul Scully MP, said:
“The UK is the second largest global centre for FinTech, and this new facility will serve as an incubator for a new generation of businesses and a leading hub for the latest academic research and insights.”
The Centre will be led by 25 academics and FinTech business leaders who will drive research and development across its specialisms. The Centre has further plans to hire a number of top research fellows by the end of the year to continue expanding its expertise.
The Centre will also act as a platform for industry collaboration projects, virtual and augmented reality teaching, and applications of advanced generative AI in financial services.
The lab area features state-of-the-art computing facilities, virtual reality capabilities, as well as access to AI and data analytics software.
