The price of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin keep on reaching new highs. While this is interesting there are a lot of other blockchain applications than can have a much broader value for society. Public sector administration, health care, food transparency, financial services, accounting are some examples.

As part of this we invite you to a seminar with presentations from international thought leaders in this area.
