A new digital era for SMEs in the agri-food, healthcare and logistics sectors
Faced with the challenge of opening up new opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises in an increasingly connected and digitalised business landscape, eight partners with expertise in blockchain technology, digitalisation, logistics, business development and technology transfer have joined forces to build the Blockstart ecosystem. They have launched a multi-layered training programme aimed at SMEs in the above-mentioned sectors to optimise their processes and make them more efficient with the help of blockchain technology. A total of 14 experts were recruited for the programme. In courses, they imparted practical knowledge not only on blockchain technology, but also on the development of new business areas and regulatory issues relating to medical technology products. Since 2019, more than 30 small and medium-sized companies from north-west Europe have already benefited from the comprehensive Blockstart SME training programme.
