EC to Launch Fintech Challenge for Ukraine Initiative

The European Commission (EC) is launching the Fintech Challenge for Ukraine initiative, which will be an international coding competition that will take place in June 2022 in the format of idea workshops and a hackathon. Winners will be announced at the end of June 2022. Companies and individuals from all over the world are invited to develop technological solutions that will provide multi-sectoral assistance to Ukrainians (including refugees, internally-displaced persons and non-displaced persons) in their daily lives, enable the provision of everyday services to companies and support the recovery of Ukraine. The Fintech Challenge for Ukraine initiative is being organized by the European Digital Finance Association (EDFA) in cooperation with the Ukrainian Association of Fintech and Innovative Companies (UAFIC).
