Event Summary:

Blockchain & Digitalisation: Impacting Public & Private Sectors


This event was originally scheduled on 24th May 2022.

 

Interest has increased tremendously over the past few years: (venture) capital investment and the number of blockchain-related patent applications are rising and more and more businesses are moving from testing minimal viable products to considering larger scale live deployments or investing heavily in order to develop their own proprietary blockchain software.

The key features of blockchain technology which are relevant for public & private sectors include the ability to record and store information on distributed databases, immutability and the ability to cut out intermediaries will impact:

- Energy through energy digitalisation in both the renewables as well as the oil & gas sector to ensure up-to-date data is shared to allow energy supply (esp. by decentralised intermittent producers) & demand to be balanced

- Financial services through payment services, automatic performance verification and enforcement of legal obligations

- Public & private collaboration through data sharing, tax and financing

However, the development is still in its infancy and so it's important to understand both the technical and legal issues so parties can ask the right questions and make informed decisions.

During this IPFA event we will touch upon the impact of blockchain on the public & private sectors. Speakers and panellists with a wide range of experiences are gathered to tell you about the state of play of developments and potential application of blockchain.
