Future Impulses: Blockchain

| | |

In collaboration with ABC RESEARCH

Although blockchain is primarily associated with cryptocurrencies, there is much more behind this technology.

Transparency and data integrity are considered the main characteristics of this decentralized database technology. Blockchain technology is already being applied or tested in various industries as well as in public services along the value chain – be it in tracking the flow of goods in supply chains or in digital identity management.

This interactive program aims to provide an in-depth understanding of blockchain and demonstrate how this technology can be applied.
