The European Commission is seriously looking at the potential of Blockchain and distributed ledgers technologies that can change the way organisations and internet users share and exchange data, or value, in many ICT domains and industries.

The European Commission is organizing in Brussels, on 19 December 2017, an information day to highlight and explain these different topics, where participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and to network.

Beyond the hype around cryptocurrencies, the technology is still in a maturation phase, and there is a need for more innovation, research, development, piloting and proof of concepts in order to facilitate uptake. This is the reason why different topics of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 refer to Blockchain, distributed ledgers, or disruptive technologies. Coordination actions in the Fintech area will be also supported in 2018,

Registrations to attend are now closed.
