The European DIGITAL SME Alliance and Block.IS invite you to join the last Cluster Mission event, to be held in Brussels on November 25th and 26th 2021, with sessions full of exploration, knowledge exchange and all things Blockchain.
On the first day, Block.IS and BlockStart blockchain startup acceleration programmes will organise a blockchain regulation and policy workshop on “How European policy initiatives can enable the future of blockchain”. The goal is to discuss the current state of the regulatory landscape in Europe, identifying the best practices and moments for advancement and providing input into removing regulatory barriers for SMEs to adopt DLT and developing a compelling legal framework. The afternoon session will focus on the cluster ecosystem at the European level and how to nurture a strong cross-national ecosystem to foster Blockchain activities.
The second day will showcase the project’s success stories and it will be collocated with the project’s Final Event. This Cluster Mission represent a systematic approach to push and stimulate collaboration and exchange of knowledge and experience among clusters and blockchain innovators to foster innovation and the creation of new industrial value chains and emerging industries.
Apply and get reimbursed up to €750 for travel and accommodation expenses – Mission in Brussels is the place to be!
IMPORTANT: The deadline for the Cluster Mission application is November 12th, 17:00 CET (Brussels Time).
Block.IS Cluster Mission Concept
The Block.IS Cluster Missions is a supporting tool/methodology to engage and connect clusters (with different levels of developments and from different sectors of focus), and blockchain SMEs, allowing them to understand and “feel” the hosting cluster ecosystem, learn the processes required to boost innovation, find out about the available resources, build relationships and expand their networks and capacity to support their growth.
Moreover, the participants will present and represent their own clusters/ecosystems in the Block.IS community and share success stories or valuable innovation use-cases, and examples of how blockchain technology supports three verticals Block.IS supports.
It would be ensured that participants are exposed to share the insights about their home ecosystem and, most importantly, they would be given enough opportunity to build personal relationships with other clusters, blockchain SMEs and local networks.
Block.IS will implement 9 missions along with the 32-months project, engaging more than 75 clusters and 45 SMEs targeting to have participants from all European countries.
