CIONET Portugal, which was created with the aim of developing an ecosystem that brings together companies, academia, and government entities to provide the Portuguese business world with a solid knowledge in Blockchain.

At the academic level, the Blockchain Alliance Aliança counts on the presence of ISEG – Lisbon School of Economics & Management, among other universities.
The Blockchain Portuguese Alliance will develop several initiatives throughout this year to promote knowledge about this emerging paradigm, including a roadshow aimed for higher education students and business associations, challenges to promote the development of innovative solutions based on Blockchain technology, and a closing conference, where the solutions developed by the participants of this initiative will be presented.
ISEG is one of the academic entities that will host one of the sessions of the Blockchain Alliance roadshow, on a date to be announced.
