Event Agenda


Is blockchain an answer for many ills now affecting the digital world? Supporters say it’s resistant-to-modification blocks can provide a transparent and trust based platform on which to build a multitude of improved services. Yet critics worry about its effectiveness and governance. Its decentralized technology might make it hard to regulate – not to mention questions about its compatibility with key pillars of EU law and regulation.

 At this event, a panel of blockchain businesses will detail concrete cases of how they are using blockchain technology to innovate and enhance trust, transparency and efficiency in sectors as diverse as intellectual property, social media, health and others.  Policy makers will discuss the policy implications and challenges ahead for Europe.
