#EUBlockchain publications

We recently published a paper on blockchain and energy, “Towards a Peer-to-Peer Energy Market: an Overview”, by our academic partner the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

This concludes our series of academic papers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our academic partners for their contributions over the last two years.

Global Hack

@theglobalhack Global Hackathon against COVID-19

The European Commission (DG CNECT) is working with several key partners, including  the World Bank, EBRD, and various UN agencies, to support the Global Hackathon to connect people globally in a solidarity movement to develop solutions to fight the corona crisis. The Global Hackathon is organised by Estonia in cooperation with the EC and it is supported by a global network of organisations in 30 countries. We encourage anyone who is interested to get involved.
