FNR & PayPal PEARL chair

Recognizing the importance of fintech & Luxembourg’s unique relationship to it as a financial services hub, PayPal (Europe), the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) & the University of Luxembourg launched a PayPal – FNR PEARL Chair.

The aim is to demystify digital technologies & forge connections between regulators, industries & users.

Embracing a fintech identity

The Chair will be charged with leading a research team at the University’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability & Trust (SnT). With all of the ingredients in place to become a fintech leader, Luxembourg’s government seeks to accelerate development by fostering closer collaborations between public & private institutes. Their complementary knowledge bases & functions make them natural counterparts, equipped to answer each other’s questions. Combining these diverse perspectives is key to establishing Luxembourg as a fintech center of excellence.
