Kogod Blockchain Hub We Unleash the Power of Blockchain

The Kogod Blockchain Hub is a collaborative education and research-based initiative focused on the impact of blockchain technology on business processes. The Hub unifies stakeholders from the public and private sectors to create knowledge and guide hands-on applications of this emerging technology.

One of the Hub’s main goals is to foster continuous engagement with all stakeholders. This is done through various events; sharing of best practices; offering related coursework and executive education programs; working with students on live projects; and providing access to faculty expertise in different disciplines.

The Kogod Blockchain Hub is a knowledge platform where government workers, industry professionals and academics can share blockchain best practices and learn from one another.
