On September 15, Samara State Economic University (SSEU) hosted the case championship in the Youth Program FINOPOLIS.365. At the opening ceremony, First Deputy Governor of the Bank of Russia Olga Skorobogatova delivered a lecture entitled “Financial Technologies and the Digital Ruble.”
The case championship was a thrilling battle among 9 teams consisting of 38 participants from Samara, Kazan, Ufa, Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod. The participants presented their projects for the development of “Samara Regional Resident Card” services in 4 different areas:
The jury was comprised of representatives of the Volga-Vyatka Main Branch of the Bank of Russia, Samara Regional Government, SSEU, Resident Card, Tinkoff Bank, Center for Biometric Technologies, Alfa-Bank, VTB, Sberbank, PSB, CB Solidarnost.
1st place, case area – “Social Projects.” The team developed the concept for a children’s resident card that would connect to the parent’s account and provide young users with access to the social card’s various services. The card would also work as a school pass, and could be issued along with a bracelet with payment functionality. For the littlest users, the bracelet would be equipped with a GPS-tracker.
2nd place, case area – “Tourism.” The project concept envisions an app that would create a personalized route around the city, based on personal preferences. It would allow the user to make hotel reservations, get information about the local sights, theaters and museums, and also to book excursions and tours.
3rd place, case area – “Social Projects.” Creation of a single digital User-ID that would store information about the user’s status in encrypted form and present it by QR-code. Another proposal was the use of a Sport-ID, which would act as a pass to gyms and fitness clubs and record information on attendance at exercise classes.
As you may recall, the first case championship took place June 29–30 at Innopolis. Its participants designed concepts for the development of various “Republic of Tatarstan Resident Card” services. Our article provides an overview of the impressive projects that were presented by the participants.
