We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The event Blockchain for Industrial Transformations will bring togehter Blockchain stakeholders, interested parties and high level policymakers.
The final event of #Blockchain4EU will take place on May 24 2018 at the Berlaymont (Schuman Room), Brussels.
The main goals of the event are to:
Blockchain and other Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) are immutable, encrypted and timestamped databases, in which data is recorded, validated and replicated across a decentralised network of nodes.
A range of opportunities and challenges could emerge through such technologies that will potentially enable parties who are geographically distant, or have no particular trust in each other, to record, verify and share digital or digitised assets on a peer-to-peer basis with fewer to no intermediaries.
Science and knowledge provide opportunities and tools to create the Europe of tomorrow, a future based on quality of life and sustainable environment. Europe is ready to start a process of change which will not be based on the choices of elites but on those of citizens who have the opportunity both to participate in the creation of their future and to be protagonists of the transition towards a society based on science and knowledge.
