Applications are open for the Swift Institute/GBSN Case Writing Grant Competition 2022. The SWIFT Institute – GBSN Case Writing Grant will support the development of a teaching case and a research case developed by professors based in the target countries in Latin America.

- The GBSN invites its professors, doctoral students and researchers with a background and/or interest in finance, cybersecurity and/or risk management to submit a proposal.
