The Centre for Financial Innovation (CFI) together with organisations and businesses seeks solutions for real and immediate challenges in the area of finance and accounting. Big data, AI, ethical dilemmas and sustainability demand another way of working. The CFI offers insight by means of research, practical recommendations and tools and disseminates this knowledge among students and professionals.

At the heart of the changes in the financial sector we are confronted with two developments - digitalisation and sustainability, - thus we have participated in setting up and are a key player in the Centre for Economic Transformation (CET) and the Centre of Expertise of Applied AI of the university of applied science, Amsterdam.

Science and practice are of equal value in the development of new solutions. Practical problems can be solved by scientific methods and scientific knowledge is worthless without practical solutions. The basis of the CFI is practical assignments in the field, which regularly lead to internationally recognised scientific publications.

The CFI develops research projects, executes these and offers courses in the context of the financial courses of the Amsterdam university of applied science. In this way students and professionals are made aware of how they work and their role in the ‘systems’ – the totality of rules, procedures and processes within which and with which they work.

The CFI has a unique degree of knowledge in the area of fintech and finance for example in the field of stack finance, digitalisation civic crowd funding, soft controls, the honest accountant and standards for fintech businesses.

The CFI is directed by the team of the staff of Corporate Governance & Leadership of the university of applied science, Amsterdam.
