14:30 | 16:00 - THE COMPETITIVE FORCES OF THE WORLD OF FINANCE FOR OLD AND NEW TECH COMPANIES, SERVICES AND THE ROLE OF OPEN INNOVATION

Moderator: Filomena Greco

It is easy to say the world is continuously changing. After 10 years of overall a reasonable solid growth with very low levels of inflation and a strong globalization process, now after a very likely unwise declaration of new sustainability targets leading to speculative, unstable energy prices, logistic costs have skyrocketed, supply chains were disrupted, globalization looks unsustainable in terms of risks and costs. How does this affect the world of fintech? What role can open innovation play in this context? How do large companies interpret these phenomena and how do they make them pay off?
