Theme two: High-value payments
The Eurosystem is reshaping its market infrastructure services by consolidating the technical and functional aspects of TARGET2 and T2S. The aim is to improve efficiency, optimise operational costs and increase cyber resilience.
Gain more insight into how the Eurosystem wants to enhance its real-time gross settlement system and centralise liquidity management for all its market infrastructure services.
Speaker: Karen Birkel, ECB

Theme three: Collateral management
Optimising the use of collateral continues to be an important topic for market stakeholders; the Eurosystem is committed to supporting this process.
The Eurosystem is exploring the development of a centralised collateral management system. Such a system will be developed by the 4CB in addition to the development of TIPS and consolidation of TARGET2 and T2S. What are the synergies between the projects and how does the 4CB coordinate the workflows?
Speaker: Philippe Leblanc, Banque de France
