Blockchain and Smart Contracts have experienced tremendous growth and public attention in recent years. The topic is given a huge disruptive potential that affects not only the financial industry, but the entire society as well. The Department of Computer Science is located in the heart of the Crypto Valley. We maintain close relationships with many of the Blockchain focused companies, organizations and start-ups established here.
Researchers support companies in detecting the potential of this technology and in the development of new applications that are made possible by the Blockchain. Interdisciplinary approaches are at the forefront. These range from the energy sector to the luxury goods trade.
The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is also a founding partner of the IEEE Crypto Valley Conference on Blockchain Technology, which annually brings together researchers and business people from all over the world in Switzerland, as well as publishers of the interactive Blockchain learning environment.
