INTRASOFT to operate the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum

 INTRASOFT International, the global ICT company that is a Block.IS Consortium member, has been awarded the European Blockchain Observatory and Forum project by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Informatics (DIGIT).

The Observatory was created in 2017 aimed at facilitating the development and uptake of blockchain applications in Europe, and thereby positioning the EU as a global leader in the field.

After a competitive process following a call for tenders announced in October 2019, the European Commission has selected a consortium consisting of INTRASOFT, the University of Nicosia, the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH), and subcontractors (including Bitfury Group, OpenForum Europe AISBL, White Research, PLANET S.A.) as the new partner to operate the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum, taking over the role from the consortium led by ConsenSys A.G.

We are extremely happy to announce our new exciting project with DIGIT, which solidifies our position in the field of institutional communications and consultancy. We aim to provide the blockchain community with state-of-the-art tools in order to share knowledge and expertise, assisting the European Commission in meeting its ambitious objectives in this field.
