#EUBlockchain publications

The Observatory & Forum recently issued a major publication: the latest thematic report focuses on Blockchain and the GDPR. In this report, we examine the issues and tensions associated with the implementation of GDPR when using technology, and propose a potential way forward.

Our EU Blockchain Map now also counts close to 400 projects! The initiative is intended to support a better understanding of the blockchain technology and innovation landscape by dynamically mapping existing blockchain projects, initiatives and events in Europe. Let us know about your projects easily using this form.
