Here we make Small and Medium Enterprises the winner of Blockchain (R)evolution

Together, we will understand and concentrate upon the use cases

The technology

The blockchain technology ensures freedom of action. It allows secure transactions without any reliance upon the external agency. It is considered to bring the „revolution of the Internet“. Intermediaries will be the thing of past. The technology aims to eliminate both classical intermediaries like: insurance companies, energy suppliers, and other intermediary functions of all kinds. Instead of mediation by a central authority, the Blockchain aims to establish direct relationship between various market participants.

With Blockchain technology, every transaction like: securities, monetary, real-estate, properties, copyrights, cars, services, foods, energy and much more, can be done in real time. Not only monetary transaction but political governance can be conducted digitally and securely through Blockchain, by including the same in democratic processes.

The Innovation Forum

The Innovationsforum Blockchain is a project sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, aiming to assist German based small and medium-sized businesses to adopt the Blockchain technology. The Innovations Forum will network with enterprises that have already explored this technology for their businesses, and will provide a platform to intensively exchange and deal with this technology in a concrete, application-oriented manner.

Blockchain is comprehensible within the framework of the Innovations Forum. The Innovations Forum will not only answer social and technical questions of the participants but will also identify concrete business applications of the Blockchain technology.

Starting from April, there will be regular workshops on various issues of Blockchain technology, addressing diverse industry need. Experts from various disciplines will be invited to share their knowledge with industry and academic participants. The Innovations Forum partnering with various organisations will organise these workshops.
