Vai alla versione italiana Site Search

The '2022 Call for Proposals' is dedicated to the following theme:

'Application of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to banking, financial, insurance and payment services, with special regard to ensuring: governance reliability and compliance with the applicable provisions and guidelines expressed by the Authorities; robust settlement mechanisms with particular regard to solutions capable of ensuring the final settlement of payments in central bank money; interoperability with other DLT platforms or platforms based on alternative models (e.g. API); certainty and security of operations from a technical and legal standpoint (for example, in terms of transaction finality); and consumer protection.'

As with the '2021 Call for Proposals', the projects were submitted by three different categories of Italian or foreign entities, for each of which there is a dedicated operational area of Milano Hub:

  • Fintech Hub: non-bank/non-financial firms (e.g. technology solution providers);
  • Innovation Hub: banking, financial and insurance intermediaries;
  • Research & Development Hub: universities, research institutions, other entities.

The project selection phase is carried out by an evaluation panel.

Projects are evaluated based on three criteria:

  • 'Relevance', which measures how relevant projects are to the theme of the Call for Proposals;
  • 'Value', which includes the following sub-criteria: system relevance and scalability, innovative content, completeness, and sustainability;
  • 'Viability', which includes the sub-criteria of feasibility, measurability and security.

The three criteria and their respective sub-criteria will be weighted differently depending on the project's operational area.

Projects within Milano Hub usually receive support for up to six months.
