SEED2019 - Scientific Ecosystem Experimentation with Decentralization

Co-create the future of science and blockchain technology

Partner: ETH Library Lab

Discover the potential of blockchain in science

Intersecting blockchain and science has a great potential for incentivizing collaboration and openness in science, finding new ways of funding research projects, and empowering the scientific community. 

This means that this technology can revolutionize more than just the financial system.

Blockchain school

Learn the basics of the blockchain technology, as well as the peer-to-peer technology beyond blockchain. Get introduced to the global landscape of science. Immerse yourself in the scientific and industrial worlds, and where they intersect.

Interdisciplinary collaboration

Meet industry experts, lawyers, scientists, librarians, technologists from all around the world. Co-create the future of blockchain and other peer-to-peer technologies with design thinking methodology.  SEED is not just about talking, it’s about building. Develop ideas, which have direct impact on the future of the knowledge of mankind, and bring them to life after SEED.

We turn your idea into code

SEED is just the beginning - we'll turn the best idea into open source code.. Leave SEED with the right background and tools to transfer what you’ve learnt into your own project. Imagine developing advanced ideas in your own field and testing them in your own environment!
