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 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.
