world govtechioneers race

Desde Medialab UGR damos difusión a la iniciativa “Blockchain Virtual GovHack”, un hackaton internacional convocado por el gobierno de los Emiratos Árabes Unidos (EAU) en el que Indra participa en calidad de patrocinador.

El objetivo del hackaton es explorar las múltiples aplicaciones del Blockchain en 5 temáticas principales:

  • Re-inventing Global Identity
  • Reducing the Paper Footprint
  • Fighting Fraud and Proceeds of Crime
  • The Future of Health
  • Building Smart Cities

Consideramos que esta iniciativa representa una gran oportunidad tanto para los investigadores y colaboradores como para los alumnos de nuestra Universidad. Los participantes, independientemente de los atractivos premios ofrecidos, tendrán la oportunidad de gestar y poner en marcha ideas innovadoras recibiendo el apoyo y la experiencia de Indra para el desarrollo conceptual y la elaboración de un plan de negocio asociado a las mismas.

Este proyecto está dirigido a toda persona vinculada a la comunidad universitaria. Las bases y diferentes modalidades de participación se pueden encontrar detalladas en estas páginas web: una y dos.

Incluimos la invitación original en inglés a continuación.
