Finbc now member of the Blockchain Bundesverband

The Blockchain Bundesverband was founded on 29 June 2017 from the middle of the German Blockchain community. The non-profit association quickly grew to more than sixty members, among them the leading start-ups in the blockchain sector based in Germany.

As a member of the federal block, finbc is pleased to actively participate in the implementation of the goals and strategies for establishing the blockchain as an enabler technology.

The Blockchain Bundesverband is convinced that Blockchain and similar cryptographic-based decentralized technologies represent fundamental infrastructural innovations. This insight is elementary for the significance of Germany in a digitally networked world. The potential of blockchain technology can only unfold if citizens as well as private and public institutions network with the technology and the technology itself is recognised by law and society.

As a means of promoting economic growth and creating jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political support of European leaders and Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and put it at the heart of the EU’s plan for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.

By linking research and innovation, Horizon 2020 helps to achieve this by focusing on excellence in science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The aim is to ensure that Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together to deliver innovation.

Horizon 2020 is open to all, with a simple structure that reduces bureaucracy and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach ensures that new projects are launched quickly – and deliver results faster.
