Event Agenda


Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) have become extremely popular, and are being tested by governments, academics and industry in view of a future that promises more efficiency, less intermediation, better service at higher speed with less problems, and the enablement of new, innovative decentralized services. Originally designed to back cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, distributed ledger architectures have proliferated and evolved, permeating many sectors of the economy, and conquering the attention of most stakeholders. The Task Force aims to address, inter alia, whether the EU project can really benefit from a widespread investment in DLTs and in what sectors are DLTs most promising.

This second meeting of the Task Force will focus on a number of issues:
– Blockchain: governance problems and possible evolution
– Blockchain business models: an ever-evolving story
– Case study: Alastria as a prototype of national blockchain platform
– Case study: Estonia the blockchain country
– Blockchain and policy

Rapporteurs: Andrea Renda, Senior Research Fellow, CEPS; Sylvain Bouyon, Head of Fintech and Retail Finance, CEPS

Chairman: Eva Kaili, Member of the European Parliament

This meeting is only open to the members of the Task Force.
