BIS Innovation Network

The BIS Innovation Network, launched by the BIS Innovation Hub in January 2021, aims to enable and facilitate knowledge-sharing and advance collaboration among central banks. The BIS Innovation Network consists of plenary and six working groups, which align with the thematic priorities of the BIS Innovation Hub. It provides a platform for central banks' experts to exchange views, discuss technology trends, and to inform on member's latest projects and initiatives. The BIS Innovation Network also plays a key role to support the BIS Innovation Hub priorities in identifying potential technology solutions for common central banks' problems and developing its projects. The network is open to all BIS member central banks.
