High-performing teams are composed of individuals with specialized expertise and complementary skills.

The data-set will be freely accessible by sending an e-mail to after registration. The event has been communicated during the Diversity challenges and Opportunities in Fintech Conference (Naples, May 16-17).

Teams need to produce a short report or a presentation (10 pages maximum) where they report the goal, the analysis and the main results with some references.

The selection of the three main teams with the best contributions will be done by an interdisciplinary committee composed of Statisticians, Data analysts, Economists, Experts in Finance, Gender Equality and Informatics. The selection will be done on the base of methodological framework, readability, clarity, and the communication impact. Detailed guidelines will be sent to participants after the registration.
