The BOND (Blockchains Boosting Finnish Industry) project investigates blockchain as a fundamental enabler for the “Internet-of-Value”.
The project increases the current knowledge of the tools required to apply the technology, which is crucial to identifying new business opportunities and application scenarios that create a base for new business models in several industry domains. Moreover, the BOND project initiates an ecosystem of Finnish companies and research organizations interested in blockchain technology, and disseminates the lessons learned through rapid experiments and industrial pilots. The long-term goal is to develop blockchain-related competences in Finland for the international competitiveness of Finnish firms. Aalto University’s research partners in the project are VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and ETLA.
