SUSS joins the British Blockchain Association
The Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) is the latest academic institution to join the British Blockchain Association (BBA).
The BBA is the first UK-wide organisation to encourage and facilitate the adoption of blockchain technology across public, private and third sectors.
With a strong focus on academic engagement the BBA is helping universities such as SUSS to incorporate blockchain education as part of their core curriculums.
Dr. Naseem Naqvi, BBA co-founder said:
“There is an impending need of universities to offer Blockchain education. According to figures, graduates searching for blockchain-related jobs have increased by 223 percent in the past 12 months. In order to give graduates a better opportunity of landing the position they want in this emerging space, it is prudent that universities look into establishing high quality educational programmes on blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. Here at the BBA we are very keen to work in close collaboration with the universities and academic institutions to provide support, and to work towards the advancement of this revolutionary technology”
Dr. Jane Thomason, Global Ambassador for the BBA, said:
“Singapore is a world leader in blockchain and we can learn a great deal from the future forward approach of the Singapore Government and the many innovative blockchain companies in Singapore. We welcome the Singapore University of Social Sciences and the richness of ideas and collaboration that they will bring to members of the British Blockchain Association”.
Dr. Mureed Hussain, BBA co-founder added,
“This is an exciting focus for us, if we can aid and inspire students to engage in blockchain technology we are upskilling a workforce who can directly influence their future employers and implement blockchain technology into industry at a much earlier stage.”
With the launch of the Journal of the British Blockchain Association (JBBA), the only peer reviewed journal dedicated to blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) in Europe, the BBA is continuing to build on its foundation to become the only organization to facilitate communication, discussion and dissemination of research related ideas, opinions, and solutions related to DLT, blockchain and digital currencies.
