Transition Final Meeting on 10 December 2021!
The Transition Partners met one last time on December the 10th at the final meeting held in the beautiful premises of the Malta Stock Exchange, the project leader.
The partners reviewed the entire production of intellectual outputs agreeing that the products can be considered substantially completed, except for some minor changes of a graphic nature. The partners also finalised a further product, not foreseen in the initial project, a publication illustrating the main applications in various industrial sectors of blockchain-related technologies.
The meeting ended after agreeing on how to handle the final reporting phase.
All partners were very enthusiastic about the experience and will certainly try to work together again on new project ideas.
Transition Multiplier Event on 8 November 2021!
The last multiplier event of the Transition project took place on 8 November, simultaneously in three different locations and online on Zoom. The event was held simultaneously online and broadcast in three different locations (Brussels, The Hague and Milan) to three live audiences, with different speakers illustrating the results achieved so far by the project.
Particular attention was given to the educational material contained in the Blockchain Advanced course for entrepreneurs, which is the third intellectual product of the Transition project.
Each project partner illustrated its contribution to the developed learning materials and explained how these could be useful to the target groups designated by the project and reused in future training courses.
The meeting was enriched by the final intervention of Alexander Pfeiffer, an expert on blockchain technologies and their impact on game-based education and learning assessment. It is possible to download his interesting presentation here.
The event gathered a large number of participants from all three locations and a good interest was shown by the number of users connected directly online.
Consortium Meeting on 2-3 September 2021 in Ancona, Italy
On 2 and 3 September, the Transition project consortium met in Ancona at the FVB-The Hive partner’s premises to discuss the status of the project and the next steps to be taken.
The partnership carried out a comprehensive review of the outputs produced so far and took the last decisions necessary for the completion of the third intellectual output – the specialised course on blockchain and digital ledgers for entrepreneurs.
The meeting also outlined the guidelines for the next multiplier events and the learning activity to be held in The Hague next month.
After a fruitful discussion, the partners agreed to meet in Malta for the last meeting of the Transition project.
New Eu Blockchain strategy launched!
28 May 2021
The EU believes that blockchain technology when properly used can provide significant benefits to European industry, the European economy, and to European society as a whole. For this reason, the European Commission is supporting blockchain on the policy, legal and regulatory, and funding fronts.
Blockchain technology allows people and organisations who may not know or trust each other to collectively agree on and permanently record information without a third-party authority. By creating trust in data in ways that were not possible before, blockchain has the potential to revolutionise how we share information and carry out transactions online.
The EU believes that blockchain technology can provide significant benefits to European industry, the European economy, and to European society as a whole. For this reason, the European Commission is supporting blockchain through policy, legislation, regulation and funding.
The Commission’s blockchain strategy
The most significant elements of the European Commission’s blockchain strategy include:
- A European Blockchain Partnership: developing joint visions and initiatives and creating a pan-European approach.
- A European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI): The European Blockchain Partnership commits the public sector to building its own blockchain backbone infrastructure for cooperation across borders.
- A comprehensive legal framework: The European Commission will create legal certainty through a pro-innovation framework in the areas of digital assets and smart contracts.
- Blockchain innovation funding: The EU provides funding for blockchain research and innovation both in the form of grants and by supporting investment in startups.
- Interoperability and standards for blockchain: The European Commission believes strongly in the importance of standards in promoting blockchain technology and looks to engage with all relevant bodies globally.
- the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum: ensuring interaction with the private sector, academia and the blockchain community
