The distributed ledger technology known as blockchain holds potential to revolutionize global financial markets. But blockchain applications extend beyond finance.

Big corporations are also embracing blockchains to improve transparency in their supply chains, but there are still some big questions about how and where the technology can be best applied.

  • How can we be sure that information uploaded to a blockchain is reliable at the interface between the real world and the blockchain i.e. “The Oracle”?
  • How robust is the technology behind blockchain?
  • Which industries have the most to gain from the transparency that a blockchain gives?
  • How can companies be convinced to start using blockchain despite that there are few real world cases?

Join GreenBuzz for a thematic evening to discuss blockchain technologies and their applications for supply chain management.

Non-experts are welcome to attend, as well as professionals who already have exposure to or expertise in blockchain technology in their daily work.

Speakers include CTO of IBM Switzerland  Philipp Spaeti, Sabine Löetscher from WWF Switzerland, Senior Blockchain Technology Advisor and Expert Micha Roon, and Harald Rauter, senior innovation specialist at Climate-KIC.

This event addresses Sustainable Development Goals 9 (Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure) and 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
