Block.IS Virtual Cluster Mission Berlin

The IT-Logistics Cluster and Block.IS virtually invite you to Berlin on November 10th 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 in cooperation with Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH and BerChain e.V., which provide a deep-dive into Blockchain and the cluster ecosystem in Europe.

Did you know that Berlin is not only the capital of Germany but also home to an innovative Blockchain-Hub? Therefore, the morning session of the virtual cluster mission will provide the opportunity to learn from local experts how Berlin was able to nurture a strong ecosystem of clusters, digital founders and entrepreneurs with a focus on Blockchain.

In the afternoon session, we will dive deeper into Blockchain to uncover why this technology has the potential to disrupt a multitude of industries like the FinTech sector and 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!
