EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum

What do you hope to achieve?

The European Blockchain Observatory and Forum is a two-year initiative to accelerate blockchain innovation and the development of the blockchain ecosystem within the EU, and so help cement Europe’s position as a global leader in this transformative new technology.

Conceived as both a watchtower for gathering information and a lighthouse to guide Europe into the new world that blockchain is shaping, the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum will make a substantive contribution towards fulfilling the European Commission's blockchain objectives. These include building upon existing European blockchain initiatives, ensuring they work across borders, consolidating expertise, and above all seizing the opportunities that blockchain’s new paradigms hold out for the benefit of the EU's citizens and economy.

Considering its size, academic resources, culture of innovation and deep pools of talent, Europe is in an excellent position to take a globally leading role in the development and adoption of this exciting new technology.
