Blockchain & Distributed Ledger Innovations for eHealth

Event Details

Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) in general, alongside Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things, are increasingly recognized as transformational technologies for the Health sector. The first session of this event provides an introduction about DLTs such as Blockchain and Tangle. IOTA Foundation develops the Tangle, which overcomes the limitations of conventional Blockchain, and opens a new landscape of opportunities for eHealth cross silo data exchanges, connected care, MyData/GDPR among others. The H2020 matchmaking workshop in the second session of this event will provide an opportunity to clusters, SMEs and industrial giants to pitch their project ideas to form the consortia for accelerating Blockchain and eHealth proposals.
