Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will publish some selected papers from the annual conference of IETSO 2020 (https://repa.jp/ietso-poland/). The development of financial technologies is responsible for significant tensions on the demand on financial assets and sustainable economic growth. Some financial assets can become strategic and critical resources. The development of financial technologies is determined by the success achieved in studying the formation processes and properties of the economic system.

This Special Issue aims to gather recent advances in the field of sustainable development and financial innovation. These challenges are related to fintech, but environmental, societal, economic, and financial tools as well as process management are also of interest.

This Special Issue is on the emerging technologies and applications in the field of financial innovation, including but not limited to:

  • Smart payment and open innovation;
  • Blockchain and open innovation;
  • Cryptocurrencies and open innovation;
  • Cashless payments and open innovation;
