ABOUT

The CLEAR project is a research initiative focusing predominantly on the law and practice of crowdfunding. While the research is anchored with Aalborg University, it is an open collaborative environment in which stakeholders from the industry, public authorities, researchers and students join forces. The CLEAR project's mission: "From our outset in legal science we want to understand and inform stakeholders and the public of the law and practice in crowdfunding so they can pursue opportunities, create wealth for the many, increase trust in digital community finance, fight crime, and strike a fair balance between interests involved."

 

VISION

We envisage a world where access to community capital is common and where private individuals promote developments they desire by direct investment or donation. We currently see the fintech movement shaping, improving and disrupting the financial sector, often internationalising it. We see a growing number of crowdfunding service providers, investors and users. And we believe that the digital transformation of the well known community finance - crowdfunding - holds a valuable potential for business development and democratization of the financial services industry.

 

MISSION

From our outset in legal science we want to understand and inform stakeholders and the public of the law and practice in crowdfunding so they can pursue opportunities, create wealth for the many, increase trust in digital community finance, fight crime, and strike a fair balance between interests involved.
