The final event of the project #Blockchain4EU: Blockchain for Industrial Transformations will take place on May 24 2018 at the Berlaymont (Schuman Room), Brussels.

We will gather Blockchain communities and other stakeholders interested in the development or uptake of Blockchain and other Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs), counting also with the presence of high level policymakers as Lowri Evans, DG GROW’s Director-General, and Vladimir Šucha, DG JRC’s Director-General.

Throughout a full-day with multiple sessions, our main goals are to:

  • launch the project’s final report based on research conducted by DG JRC’s EU Policy Lab;
  • present five speculative design prototypes co-created for policy purposes with multiple stakeholders in Health, Advanced Manufacturing, Transportation and Logistics, Energy and Creative Industries.
  • and engage the audience in a series of interactive dialogues, with a final roundtable on the paths ahead for Blockchain and other DLTs in industrial / non-financial sectors.

The project #Blockchain4EU: Blockchain for Industrial Transformations is a forward looking exploration of existing, emerging and potential applications based on Blockchain and other DLTs for non-financial / industry spaces. It aims to identify, discuss and communicate possible uses and impacts of Blockchain and other DLT based objects, networks and services in specific sectors and use cases. To know more about the project, its main activities, and its research intersections between Science and Technology Studies, Foresight and Horizon Scanning, and Design for Policy, please visit the projects’s webpage in this blog.

#Blockchain4EU is coordinated by DG JRC’s EU Policy Lab / Foresight, Behavioural Insights & Design for Policy Unit (I.2) in collaboration with DG GROW’s Innovation Policy and Investment for Growth Unit (F.1).

Registration will be required for the event due to the limited number of available places in the room.

Registration link and agenda will be released in the upcoming days. Keep your eyes on our blog!
