3x3 FinTech lecture series


The 3x3 lecture series is a joint project between the Luxembourg House of Financial Technology (LHoFT) and the University of Luxembourg.

Over the course of the 2016-2017 academic year, it will feature three speakers from each of the three disciplines carrying out FinTech research at the University of Luxembourg – information technology, finance and law. 3x3 brings together academics at the forefront of FinTech research and professionals from Luxembourg's business community and financial centre. It bridges the academic-practice divide and discusses the practical implications of FinTech research for financial services and the potential repercussions for the industry, furthering knowledge transfer and exchange of information and expertise.
