Blockchain for Entrepreneurs – a non-traditional Industry 4.0 curriculum for Higher Education

VITECO takes part to the BLOCKS project, co-funded by the European programme “Erasmus +”.

The BLOCKS project creates a networked collaboration platform on curriculum development for universities and companies in Romania, Italy, Estonia, Latvia and Greece to develop non-traditional, blended-learning courses, tailored for an Industry 4.0 world, focused on providing teachers, students and entrepreneurs with knowledge and skills on the blockchain.

  • Design and development of blended learning curricula on blockchain for students, entrepreneurs, other users;
