Summer School: Deep Dive into Blockchain–Linking Economics, Technology and Law


This online summer school program 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. 
But most importantly, the program is highly interactive, with both theory and hands-on practice sessions offered by blockchain experts from Switzerland, Austria, China, Germany, U.S.A, Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom!

Course Director: Prof. Dr Claudio J. Tessone
