m-payment project


The objective of this research is to assess the possible disruptive innovation of m-payment in Switzerland using a multi-actor multi-criterion framework. Firstly, a disruptive analysis is conducted to detect a possible sliding from the current payment cards initially introduced by ’nancial institutions to the newly designed mobile payment schemes involving mobile phones and supported by mobile operators. Secondly, another analysis intends to observe a possible switch from an integrated market driven by dominant actors to a more or less self-organized market where mobile payment solutions are o’ered by intermediaries and new-comers.
