Let’s start a journey and get deeper into the topic. What is Blockchain? What does it mean for logistics? What are key technical developments? And why are Smart Contracts important for the realization of  a plattform oeconomy like the Silicon Economy? Blockchains will fundamentally change the world as we know it in the coming years. They will disrupt entire industries, payment transactions and established processes, and turn familiar business models upside down. Moreover, blockchain is the enabler of the approaching platform economy. Reason enough to focus our Summer School on the technology, its possibilities and the enormous potential for benefits and transformation.
