Innovation Groups


NCE Finance Innovation runs and facilitates innovation groups with a strong interdisciplinary focus. Our members initiate these groups within subject matters that are relevant for the cluster community. The groups act as a forum for discussion, sparring and scoping out potential projects.

The cluster has two active groups working on KYC/AML and Open Banking.

We encourage members who wish to work on specific topics with other cluster members to get in touch with the cluster team. We are happy to provide the tools and facilities to get innovation groups up and running.


Collaborating to improve digital onboarding of customers through improved Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) processes.

KYC & AML are two different but closely intertwined areas of interest for the fintech industry and our members. The group is looking into reliable identification of new customers and real stakeholders, simplifying onboarding processes, developing a common understanding of legal regulations and sharing of data between competitors. The group aims to establish a common KYC-process for all Norwegian Banks.

The innovation group consists of cluster members Balder Betaling, BRAbank, Sbanken, Signicat, Vipps, Stacc, SpareBank1 SR-Bank, Sparebanken Sogn & Fjordane and Sparebanken Vest.

Open Banking

By leveraging expertise from banks, tech and consulting the group is working to solve the complex challenges of modern banking while improving customer experience.

The Open Banking-group originated from a successful pre-PSD2 project. Today the group works with scoping out new innovative and cross disciplinary projects while sharing knowledge and insights from the industry.

The innovation group consists of representatives from cluster members Sparebanken Vest, Sparebank 1 SR-Bank, Nets, Evry, Zdata, Accenture, Pwc, Cicero Consulting and Capgemini.
