The era of blockchain is here, bringing with it the potential to revolutionize not just the financial industry, but public services as well. The European Blockchain Partnership (EBP) is at the forefront of this transformative wave, creating a cohesive EU strategy on blockchain and building an infrastructure for public services.

The EBP’s primary focus has been establishing the European Blockchain Services Infrastructure (EBSI), a unified framework that aims to avoid fragmentation of the blockchain landscape in Europe. The EBSI will offer a regulatory-compliant environment for blockchain technologies to flourish, creating more efficient and accessible cross-border government services.

This is where the BESIDE project, an Erasmus+ funded initiative, comes into play. BESIDE is designed to empower financial professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the evolving digital landscape, especially in the application of blockchain technology. The vision of the EBP aligns with the BESIDE project’s focus on supporting the digital transformation of the vocational education and training sector.

As the EBSI evolves, we can anticipate a future where all public services will leverage blockchain technology. In the words of Mariya Gabriel, the then Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, “Blockchain is a great opportunity for Europe and Member States to rethink their information systems, to promote user trust and the protection of personal data, to help create new business opportunities and to establish new areas of leadership, benefiting citizens, public services and companies.”

The objectives of the BESIDE project resonate with this vision, making it a vital initiative for financial professionals aiming to stay ahead in the digital age and comply with EU policies. Our courses and e-learning platform provide the tools needed to embrace the digital transformation, aligning with EU’s digital policy, and fostering the broader deployment of blockchain-based services.

The landscape of the digital world is changing rapidly, and blockchain technology is at the core of this transformation. Let’s navigate this exciting journey together!
