The third International Blockchain Forum had its focus on the application of Blockchain technology in the service of the Clean Energy sector.
Once again, we brought together renowned scientists, promising start-ups and successful established companies from Switzerland and our partner countries Great Britain, USA and Canada. The event took place at one of Switzerland's leading Blockchain research centers in the heart of the Crypto Valley, the Lucerne School of Information Technology in Rotkreuz.
The conference is a premier event for scientists, business representatives, students and other interested parties. It facilitates the dialogue between academia and industry around this topical issue. We addressed potential use cases in fields as diverse as energy trading, energy certificates, clean energy production, mobility and others.
After the conference we will compile a Topical Issue of the Frontiers in Blockchain Journal. All participants are invited to submit contributions. The conference was an ideal place for networking and exchange to establish research partnerships and future working groups.
The third Blockchain Forum was successfully held on the Zug-Rotkreuz campus on 19th February 2020. Exciting speakers talked about their applications of blockchain for clean energy.
The first of various exciting items of the conference was the Round Table discussion of the Embassies, followed by presentations of cutting-edge research results in the Academic Track. Before heading to lunch, participants had the opportunity to discuss eight specialist topics in the BarCamp. After lunch, a number of start-ups introduced themselves and reported on their projects. The official part concluded with two use cases and the DLT-for-power initiative. At the subsequent drinks reception, participants had another chance to exchange impressions.
