Open Banking & PSD2

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

About the group:

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.

A main focus for the group is to invite interesting speakers from both inside and outside the cluster to facilitate debates and discuss current events in the fintech industry. Lately, the group has had great success facilitating round-table discussions between banks and fintechs to get to the bottom of why the implementation of APIs towards third party providers is taking so long to develop, and how banks and fintechs can speed this process along by cooperating.

The innovation group consists of representatives from cluster members:
Sparebanken Vest
Sparebank 1 SR-Bank
Cicero Consulting

Group Leader:
Stefan Astroza, Head of Analysis at Cicero Consulting
NCE Finance Innovation Coordinator:
HÃ¥kon Lavik
