As blockchain continues to develop and show promise to provide solutions and efficiencies in many areas of business practice, there are still challenges that must be overcome for industry-wide adoptions. These challenges are being addressed by blockchain-focused platform providers and developers across the industry and university landscape. Ultimately, practice models will be developed and tested that will lead to trusted industry-unique adoptions.
This forum will:
- show you examples of university blockchain research
- help you understand how to engage with universities to remove roadblocks to implementation
- provide a forum for your input to the challenges that you would like to see adressed, and
- share what universities are doing to prepare your blockchain workforce.
