Date: Tuesday 7th of November
Time: 14.00 - 17.30 (incl. network reception)

Data in the blockchain is unchangeable and digitally recorded in packages (called blocks). This technology will have a major impact on supply chains, potentially reducing delays and making the need for intermediaries obsolete. Click to see the complete programme.
