About the School


Established in January 2016 as part of the Robert Schuman Centre, the Florence School of Banking & Finance was designed as a European platform bringing together practitioners and academics from the banking and finance sector to develop a common culture of regulation and supervision in the European Union. The School is evolving into a knowledge centre of excellence, rooted in European origins while maintaining a global perspective. It offers policy dialogue and training and produces research in banking and finance. Its training courses, conferences and seminars are held in Florence or using interactive online formats, in close cooperation with its networks of leading academic and policy institutions.
