EU Industry week 2019

As a part of the EU Industry week, a workshop “Blockchain, Digital Social Innovation and Social Economy. The Future is here!”  will take place in Brussels at EESC on 7th February 2019.

The workshop on blockchain, digital innovation and social economy aims to keep the attention on developing of scalable, efficient and high-impact decentralised solutions to social innovation challenges but also to bring social economy enterprises and related stakeholders closer to blockchain technology as possible tools for their developments.

The first panel “Blockchain, DLT, Digital solutions and Social Economy – The state of play, the policies, the goals” will be focused on what are doing the Eu Institutions about this point (Blockchain technologies/ digital solutions for social changes and social economy).

The second panel “Blockchain solutions for Social Economy and SDGS” will present solutions based on Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLTs) for social goals.

And the third panel “Social economy enterprises and digital social innovation”, is focused on digital technologies and social economy enterprises and how they can link together in strengthening social innovation on shared knowledge and participatory practices.

In this panel there will be: Coop Samarcanda and Apptaxi (Italy) on sustainable and social urban mobility; Simplon (France) a network of social digital factories with different projects like training on digitalisation for migrants; Doc Servizi (Italy), a co-operatively owned business model that facilitates the trade of entertainment, cultural, and creative companies’ goods and services, with the purpose of fostering a socially and economically equitable landscape. Finally, Redscope’s Claudia de Castro Caldeirinha, will be a panelist, bringing a significant added value to the programme focusing on blockchain technologies and gender equality (risk and opportunities).
