New consortium continues the legacy


To build on past achievements and create new momentum, the newly formed consortium, led by INTRASOFT International, is committed to continuing the mission of the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum. The new consortium has set a clear mandate to further explore, expand and strengthen the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum activities in the world of blockchain technology.

INTRASOFT International, the University of Nicosia and Greece’s National Centre for Research and Technological Development (CERTH) form the core consortium. Partners include technology leaders, top universities, as well as research and consulting organizations. With solid expertise on the global blockchain ecosystem, the new consortium brings strong commitment to blockchain development. It will aim to engage the European blockchain community, promote and provide educational and outreach opportunities, and stay on the cutting edge of blockchain advancements. 

This multifaceted project boasts a diverse array of activities and scope – from web development to stakeholder engagement and from digital communications and training to consulting.

This edition of the #EUBlockchain newsletter includes a brief roundup of upcoming workshops and publications.
