Digital Finance Outreach - Croatia

About this webinar

The Digital Finance Outreach 2020 (“DFO”) is a series of events organised in collaboration with Member States in February-May 2020 on fintech and digital innovation in the financial sector to prepare the new EU Digital Finance Strategy.

This will be an occasion to:

  • Gather together the key stakeholders in digital finance from across the EU and encourage them to exchange their experiences;
  • Create awareness around the Commission’s ongoing and forthcoming work on digital finance;
  • Generating publicity to stimulate responses on the European Commission's public consultations;
  • Create more collaboration between the various EU fintech hubs in line with the Commission's priority in creating a Single Market for Digital Finance.

The public consultation is available here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/consultations/finance-2020-digital-finance-strategy_en

  • What can Digital Finance players do to help us navigate through the crisis?
