The purpose behind the DLT4All project is to address effectively the lack of European entrepreneurs’ and SMEs’, students’, investors’ and incubator managers’ understanding of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) and their applications.
While DLT and Blockchain can have significant economic and social impact, many European entrepreneurs, angel investors and incubator managers are still not aware of the potential benefits the adoption of these technologies can offer in terms of growth and innovation.
Additionally, while many European Higher Education Institutes have shown interest in blockchain, their curricula lack real-world cases from the business, investor and startup worlds that will allow them to deeply understand and analyse state-of-the-art applications and blockchain-based technologies’ innovation potentials.
DLT4All is there to fix this issue and bring to the spotlight awareness but also attractiveness of Blockchain and DLTs across all stakeholders
With DLT4All, entrepreneurs will get the chance to understand better the advantages brought by Blockchain and DLTs in their business.
Equipping incubators manager with a strong knowledge of the Blockchain and DLT technology domains will help them better assess innovative startups and eventually create links between those already incubated.
The project will equip European students, entrepreneurs, investors and incubator managers with the necessary skills and knowledge that are lacking in 8 initially defined thematic priorities:
- peer-to-peer database design,
- encryption techniques,
- consensus mechanisms,
- smart contracts,
- digital signatures,
- property rights,
- blockchain-based decentralised applications,
- distributed autonomous organisations,
DLT4All will deliver a learning platform with these 8 dedicated related learning topics and supporting case studies, online/offline training programme, evaluation, MOOC-style training, etc. It will also provide practical cases showing how Blockchain and DLTs are being used in different industries. Aimed at all targeted audiences, this agile platform will be open to all.
