About Blockchers

BLOCKCHERS fosters the matchmaking among traditional SMEs and DLT startups. At least 60 SMEs will benefit thanks to this scheme. The best group (up to 30 startups) will be selected through a couple of competitive open calls and work on blockchain/DLT use cases with traditional SMEs. Selected BLOCKCHERS will go from idea to implementation through a two-phase funding scheme and will be provided with supporting services. Other results expected are the creation of dialogue around DLTs and facilitating a new regulatory framework for the EU.
