European Blockchain Center announces new partnership

Posted on

The European Blockchain Center at the IT University of Copenhagen is partnering with SupraOracles to explore future collaborative efforts to provide value to the blockchain industry on a global scale.

Today, the European Blockchain Center at ITU can announce a new partnership with the company SupraOracles, an industry leader in the field of oracles and blockchain interoperability. The partnership is based on a mutual desire to explore avenues of research within the blockchain sphere and contribute to the over-all development of blockchain technologies everywhere.

In practice initiatives created within the framework of the new partnership may include blockchain training modules, and guest lectures to provide professional development opportunities to students interested in building the blockchain. Enabling relations between actors from academia and the private sector have proven beneficial in terms of pushing development in various sectors and the European Blockchain Center looks forward to opening the center to new input from outside the university:

“The European Blockchain Center has previously worked with private and public partners in various constellations. Our goal is always to create and disseminate knowledge on blockchain and DLT systems that benefits the research community as well as society in general. It’s an honour to be sponsored by a visionary and innovative company like SupraOracles, and I look forward to what the partnership may yield,” says Head of the European Blockchain Center, Roman Beck.

According to Roman Beck, the center hopes to expand the number of external partners going forward and eventually educate industrial PhDs in collaboration with private sector parties. The partnership model is an ideal setting because of the exploratory relationship between university and private sector. A membership fee from partners secures non-earmarked funding for the center’s research.

The European Blockchain Center was founded in 2017 with the goal of becoming a globally leading institution that understands, creates, and realizes Blockchain-based solutions in a cross-industry and cross-disciplinary private public partnership to generate value for society.

For an annual membership fee companies and organizations can become partners of the European Blockchain Center and benefit from a working relationship with the very vanguard of blockchain and DLT systems technology.
