Incubator for Industry and Academia

The SFRA seeks to act as a conduit to facilitate the creation of real world impactful quantitative problem formulation and solution development in areas of financial risk and insurance. The incubator framework provides a means to bring together leading minds of practitioners and academics to focus on creative quantitative solutions to real problems. This is intended to go well beyond a scope of simply discussing which algorithms or models to implement, but instead to innovate in data analytics, statistics and machine learning domains in order to create new approaches and implementations of such approaches. These should be applicable for adoption in global environments and acknowledgement of such innovations seeks to maintain the excellent standing of the Scottish financial sector on a global scale.
