Business School’s FinTech researchers collaborate worldwide through partnership with University of Sydney Business School
PhD students and academics from the Adam Smith Business School and University of Sydney Business School are working together for the first cross-institutional innovation challenge focused on financial technology.
The Financial Technology (FinTech) Sprint was the inaugural event in the strategic partnership between the Business School and University of Sydney Business School. It brought together ten PhD students across the two business schools who work in areas related to FinTech. The cross-institutional event was initiated between academics of the two schools in the last quarter of 2021.
Participants spent an hour developing an abstract for a joint research paper followed by a discussion with seasoned academics, with the prospect of inter-institutional funding for their research on offer.
Participants from the Adam Smith Business School included students Felix Honecker, Shying Liu, Abylay Sysdykov and Xiatong Sun, with the session facilitated by Dr Ivano Bongiovanni, who is also associated with the University of Queensland, and Dr Adina Dudau.
The Adam Smith Business School entered into a partnership with University of Sydney in June 2021 to promote research collaborations, academic exchange and student mobility between the two institutions.
