Event description
What has Covid-19 taught us about global supply chains and how can blockchain help?

About this Event

Covid-19 like no other event before has highlighted strongly how fragmented and intransparent supply chains are. From automotive to food and beverage to industrial goods and chemicals - almost every industry vertical was confronted with unexpected interruptions of their supply chains during the worldwide lockdowns this year. This has highlighted once again how little corporates know about their supply chains. For several years blockchain has been promoted as a solution that can contribute towards making supply chains more transparent.

We have invited a group of experts to debate on the real potential of blockchain for the supply chain industry.
