The IT-Logistics Cluster and Block.IS virtually invite you to Regensburg on May 27th 2020 for two sessions full of exploration, knowledge exchange and networking around Blockchain and innovation.
These two webinar sessions are part of our Block.IS Cluster Missions, which provide a deep-dive into Blockchain and the cluster ecosystem in Europe.
Did you know that Regensburg is not only a UNESCO world heritage site but also home to an innovative cluster ecosystem? Clusters are vital multipliers for new technologies, including Blockchain. Therefore, the morning session of the virtual cluster mission will provide the opportunity to learn from local experts how Regensburg was able to nurture a strong ecosystem of clusters, digital founders and entrepreneurs in the past 20 years.
In the afternoon session, we will dive deeper into Blockchain to uncover why this technology has the potential to disrupt a multitude of industries and to see whether this transformation is just around the corner or a vision for the future. Experts from research and practice will provide an overview of the status quo, state-of-the-art practices, challenges and will give an outlook on how the technology might unfold and impact our world.
Times like these show us once more how important global collaboration and knowledge exchange is, so come and join us virtually to connect & exchange around Blockchain!
