World’s Leading Institutions form Coalition for Evidence-Based Blockchain (CEBB)

A neutral, independent and decentralised consortium of leading Blockchain research institutions have joined forces to form Coalition for Evidence-Based Blockchain (CEBB).

Led by some of the world’s most eminent academics, CEBB will devise scientific benchmarks and frameworks to support governments, businesses and policymakers in making evidence-based decisions. As a collective voice on the advancement of Evidence-Based blockchain, the academic “Think Tank” of thought leaders and researchers endeavour to establish internationally agreed standards on education, research and policy-making for blockchain technologies. CEBB will also support organisations in setting up regional and institutional EBB chapters, run by the CEBB Leads. CEBB will also assist with the advancement of high quality research, call for papers and dissemination of scholarly content within the CEBB network. It will also facilitate joint initiatives, workshops, journal clubs, and other academic activities with CEBB members.

CEBB aims to foster network-wide collaboration in projects, case studies, applied and theoretical research to avoid duplication, and streamline resources to produce meaningful research. It will also facilitate close-knit networking opportunities and connection with peers to build evidence-based guidelines for all stakeholder organisations.
