According to the announcement on its website, part of the AMA agenda will address questions related to: what blockchain technology is and what it’s used for and what can be expected in the years to come, among other things.
The European Commission launched the EU Blockchain Observatory & Forum in February, which was backed by the European Parliament represented by Jakob von Weizsacker. The purpose of the EU Blockchain Observatory is to play an “active role” in helping Europe grasp opportunities facilitated by blockchain with an initiative of investing €340 million in blockchain by 2020. The EU Commission has already been funding blockchain projects through research programs since 2013, the announcement read.
“It will enable cross border cooperation on practical use cases, bringing Europe’s best experts together and promoting an open forum for blockchain technologists, innovators, citizens, industry stakeholders, public authorities, regulators and supervisors, to discuss and develop new ideas in order to learn,” the Observatory’s launch announcement said.
For those interested in the AMA session, the Blockchain Observatory said that questions can be tweeted by using the hashtag #AMAblockchain to its twitter handle @EUBlockchain.
