Noordung forum: Building European Blockchain Infrastructure

We invite you to Noordung Forum: Building European Blockchain Infrastructure, which will be held on 23th of April at 10.a.m. in Noordung center, Na vasi 18, 3205 Vitanje, Slovenia. Event is organized by Noordung Hub and Tolar HashNet in cooperation with Ministry of economic development and technology of the Republic of Slovenia, Noordung center and partner organizations.

Through the European Blockchain Partnership the European Union has begun to consider Member State cooperation towards the goal of a European Blockchain Services Infrastructure to support cross-border digital public services in interoperable manner. European Blockchain services infrastructure is one of the four actions; the others are Diplomas on Blockchain, VAT on Blockchain, Self Sovereign Identity and the platform, developed by European Court of Auditors for tracing the evidences on Blockchain. At Noordung forum we would like to encourage the dialogue and cooperation in creation of the future European Blockchain Infrastructure between representatives of the ecosystem of business sector of EU Member States, companies, supporting environment and the governments.

Forum objectives:

• Provide a mutual learning space where policymakers can interact with their peers and other relevant stakeholders on the potential development of European Blockchain Infrastructure
• Promote global multi-stakeholder partnerships to contribute to advancing the application of blockchain / distributed ledger technology for the implementation of future EU Blockchain Infrastructure
• Showcase how innovative start-ups and entrepreneurs are already developing solutions of blockchain infrastructure for public and private use,

Participation at Forum is free of charge. Number of participants is limited, please confirm your participation until 21st of April 2019 via e-mail:
