Digital Deep Dives series

How to design a successful European Payments market?

25th October 2023, 10:00-11:30 CET, online

The launch of the Digital Euro proposal and intended revision of the EU’s payment legislation could lead to defining changes for Europe’s digital payment landscape

This DIGITALEUROPE top-tier event will convene pivotal policy-makers and prominent industry actors, including financial institutions and payment service providers. It will serve as a dynamic platform for discourse and solution-finding on how the recent EU digital finance package can make Europe a driver for payment innovation and consumer advantages.

The session will specifically try to answer the following questions:

  • How should policy-makers strategically balance innovation, privacy, financial stability, and accessibility in their approach to designing and implementing the digital euro?
  • How can the new Payment Service Regulation and the PSD3 promote a simplification of Strong Customer Authentication to ensure innovation goes hand in hand with security?
  • What role can the industry play in making these legislative initiatives instrumental for a more prosperous and digitally inclusive Europe?

Note: several additional speakers are in the process to be confirmed
