Can the Blockchain bring a real advantage to the Public Administration?


On June 17th, 2016 Blockchain Education Network Italia (BEN) will held an event in Rome at the Consiglio Regionale del Lazio.

The main goal of this event is to start an institutional dialogue, illustrating the operation and the possible applications of blockchain technology with the participation of leading figures in the industry, in order to create a shared path between universities and public administration towards the adoption this new paradigm. 
The blockchain proved to be more than the technology behind Bitcoin: transparency , durability and free data access are features that can be useful in various fields and not only for the financial sector. 
This is the reason why banks and companies want to study this technology. During the morning we will introduce the discussion, with a presentation of the Blockchain Education Network Italia, with speeches that will illustrate the current situation of the Italian public administration, the applications of the blockchain technology both from a technical point of view and from the legal one, focusing on research progress in the academy sector. 
After the lunch break the speeches will go wider and deeper: the entrepreneurs and leading members of the blockchain scene will present additional non-financial applications of this technology, trying to address the possible interesting applications for the Italian government. 
To end this event, there will be a round table to be attended by the speakers and other guests to try and organize the key points on which is worth working during the next few months.
Among the speakers there will be Francesco Simonetti, HolyTransaction CEO, who will talk about the social aspects related to the Blockchain technology.
