The Central Bank of Ireland launched its Innovation Hub in 2018 and has sought to develop its capabilities and reach in line with the continuous development of the fintech innovation ecosystem.
It has recently launched the Consultation Paper 156, “Central Bank approach to innovation engagement in financial services” and now seeks feedback from the community.
Blockchain Ireland is delighted to host Eoin Fitzgerald, senior innovation engagement specialist, Supervisory Risk & Horizontal Division, Central Bank of Ireland, to talk about the work of the Innovation Hub, its success and development and its efforts to deepen understanding of innovation in the financial services sector, in order to understand the opportunities and risks for consumers and the economy.
