Feedback form is now closed.

Established in June 2014 the Joint Research Centre's EU Policy Lab provides a collaborative, experimental and multidisciplinary space inside the European Commission to support innovative policy making at EU level. In our activitieswe deploy a policy innovation toolbox ranging from horizon scanning and behavioural insights to collaborative creation and speculative design.

The talk will be centred on our ongoing project #Blockchain4EU: Blockchain for Industrial Transformations. By request of the European Commission's DG GROW, the project is a forward looking exploration of Blockchain for industry including supply chains and logistics, energy, intellectual property rights, authentication, and digital manufacturing. Particular focus will be placed on our use of generative research and prototyping for policy together with an extended community of technical experts and developers, social and economic scientists, entrepreneurs, legal experts, designers, business and labour representatives, and policy makers at local, national and EU levels.
