The course’s main objectives are:

● To allow the participants to develop a broad understanding of blockchain technologies and their current applications from both a theoretical and a practical perspective.
● To explore the potential impact of public permissionless blockchain technologies and their applications (cryptocurrencies, decentralized finance, DAOs) on verticals relevant for Luxembourg such as “finance”, “industry”, “public sector”.
● To explore and ideate around future value-adding applications of “private” blockchains in their specific field.

At the end of the course, the participant will have explored the technical underpinnings, the political and socio-economic implications of blockchain technologies, and will have had practical experience using blockchain applications. The participant will then be able to autonomously pursue the topic in its socio-economic, functional and innovative context as well as to understand its implications for individuals, businesses and society at large.
