Objective

The overall aim for B4CM is to develop and deliver a blockchain based testbed for the attribution of data costs across organisational boundaries, to demonstrate the operation of the framework in the context of the European Rail Industry, enabling future developers to extend the tools produced based on a known working configuration.

This project has the following main research and training objectives:
• Objective 1: To identify and develop use cases that support the application of blockchain in the railway sector;
• Objective 2: To develop an implementable blockchain framework for the attribution of data costs in systems crossing organisational boundaries;
• Objective 3: To evaluate mechanisms for the incorporation of the developed blockchain framework into the financial processes of the European rail sector;
• Objective 4: To develop a testbed, demonstrating the operation of the framework in the context of rail sector, enabling future developers to extend the tools produced based on a known working configuration;
• Objective 5: To disseminate the findings of the project and the lessons learned to influence best practice in innovation and technology uptake in a key and evolving field within the European rail sector;
• Objective 6: To support the development of a researcher in gaining a PhD and thus generating a skilled specialist valuable to the European rail sector.
