PEERS TO BLOCKCHAIN

PEERS TO BLOCKCHAIN

Objective

P2B is based on an initiative from the Technology Park of Andalucía and the International Association of Science Parks and Area, who have recently created a Blockchain Subnetwork of members actives in this field. The main objective of the project is indeed to provide SMEs with opportunities for international collaboration and to share professional expertise at European and international level.

Blockchain is a peer-to-peer system, as it is a network of interconnected computers that communicate with each other, which confirms the relevance for presenting this proposal to the current call.

According to Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society from the European Commission, “in the future, all public services will use blockchain technology. Blockchain is a great opportunity for Europe and Member States to rethink their information systems, to promote user trust and the protection of personal data, to help create new business opportunities and to establish new areas of leadership, benefiting citizens, public services and companies”.

With partners from Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, and with associate partners initially from Bulgaria, China, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungria, Italy, Palestine and Rusia, the specific objectives of the P2B project will be to analyse the current state of art of this new technology, including pilot projects and good practices in the participating regions, to propose a series of methodologies and strategies to enhance the SME innovation with the support and implementation of Blockchain and to promote the development of an effective ecosystem of innovation support to SMEs in Europe related to blockchain technologies. In addition, we will play a great emphasis on transferring the good practices and the results obtained within the regional ecosystem of each partner.
