The Financial Services Innovation Centre helps many organisations overcome their inability to pursue innovative, forward facing research by removing the constraints of normal operating conditions without losing relevance. The joint partnership gives companies the opportunity to scout new talent by working closely with promising research staff. The collaborative nature of the research and development allows participating companies to take advantage of common areas of interest, encourage the free flow of ideas and offer reduced entry costs.
University/industry partnerships have been shown to enhance the reputation of both parties. The input of a vibrant university faculty allows partners to develop solutions that are revolutionary rather than incremental improvements on existing systems.
The Centre provides a forum for thought leaders in academia and business. Round table discussions allow partner companies to discuss research, innovation and development issues with staff and also provide valuable opportunities for networking within the industry. The Centre holds an annual series of research seminars and workshops, where staff present research findings and discuss emerging topics in Information Systems research.
We also provide a keynote speaker service for conference and customer events and are happy to work with you on developing whitepapers to explain your product and services positioning better.
All of these factors combine to provide a solid foundation for future collaborative research and development in the field of financial services.
