The EUIPO and the European Commission invite the best and most pioneering teams to join the allianceagainst fake products and to co-create the next level of anti-counterfeiting infrastructure, by working directly with manufacturers, logistics companies, customs, retailers and consumers. 

The Blockathon will be held in the heart of the European Union in Brussels from 22 to 25 June 2018 (see programme) and will assemble top specialists in law, IP rights, anti-counterfeiting, track and trace, ecosystem dynamics, logistics and security to support the 11 selected teams. The total prize to be awarded is EUR 100.000. This is the unique opportunity to work together with everyone you need to achieve the best possible solutions and to explore how blockchain technology can actually make a difference and lead to a better society.
