The European Commission is organising roundtable discussions “ICT Verticals and Horizontals for Blockchain Standardisation” which would allow H2020 projects to present the work done and explore more active involvement into activities of blockchain standardisation bodies. Roundtables involve distinguished standardisation experts working with INATBA, ETSI, CEN-CENELEC, ISO TC307, IEEE, ITU-T and other respective entities.

ETSI PDL ISG has identified approximately 200 Horizon 2020 projects that in one way or another relate to blockchain. They were contacted by the European Commission and more than 60 of them expressed their interest to participate.
