The EUIPO is launching the first-ever anti-counterfeiting blockchain competition in Europe and invites the brightest blockchain teams to take part in a 4-day Blockathon from 22 to 25 June 2018, in the heart of the European Union in Brussels. The Blockathon will be held at AutoWorld, a museum housed in an emblematic location built during the industrial revolution and used for the International Exposition of 1897, at a time when society moved away from using horses to ‘horseless carriages’. A perfect place to return to the future to unleash the potential of blockchain technology and to make history together! There will be 10 selected teams that will work together with leading institutions, domain experts, industry, government partners and technology companies to co-create relevant prototypes to address the anti-counterfeiting challenge. Find more information here. The Application is open until April 30, 12:00.
