SCF Governance Webinar

There have been few occasions in history which were so uncertain and volatile as the present. To safely navigate these challenging times, the imperative of integration is now unavoidable. The resilience of the global value chain relies on the appropriate use of technology and financial resources.

Join us at our open webinar on Monday, 27th of March, from 16:00 to 17:00 CET, to learn about the latest discoveries in the field of Supply Chain Finance and the associated technologies. We will introduce the results of our research on the aspect of governance within the SCF industry. The webinar on SCF Governance, Reclassification, and SCF Disclosure is a preliminary event that will be followed up with a White Paper on the same topic shortly after the event.
