[3rd UZH Summer School DDiB’22 ] Deep Dive into Blockchain


Linking Economics, Technology and Law.

This online Summer School will give you a complete immersion into the topic of blockchain from world-leading experts and practitioners in the field.

For a full understanding of Blockchain, with all its implications and potential for application in practice, it is absolutely crucial to look at it from a multidisciplinary perspective. This is exactly what the UZH Blockchain Center offers during the three weeks of this course: you will understand the three key pillars of blockchain systems, namely the technology, the economics and the legal aspects behind it. Building on this, we will then explore other fields of application, such as forensics and data analytics.

The course is taught by different professors and lecturers from UZH and other leading universities worldwide, as well as top practitioners from various fields. Further, the program is highly interactive, with hands-on practice sessions incorporating the most advanced and promising blockchain-based platforms.
