A partnership between UNIC and R3 on the Corda blockchain

The Institute For the Future (IFF) of the University of Nicosia (UNIC) has announced a partnership with R3

R3 is the corporate blockchain software company that recently launched Corda Enterprise, a commercial distribution of their blockchain-based platform, purposely optimised to meet the needs of complex institutions. 

The objectives of this partnership are the joint development of the code at the base of Corda, the production of professional certification material and the co-organisation of the Corda Bootcamp, which will be held on October 30, 2019. 

This event will be a joint workshop as part of the annual conference of the University of Nicosia dedicated to blockchain, namely “Decentralized 2019“, and will consist of a full-day session for those who want to learn the basics of the Corda blockchain platform and start developing their own CorDapp.

IFF Director-General George Giaglis said: 

“We are very delighted to join forces with R3 and work together toward expanding the boundaries of our knowledge in enterprise blockchain platforms. Together with R3, we plan to implement a number of educational and research activities, the first of which is a co-organised educational workshop on Corda (the Corda Bootcamp) that will take place on October 30, 2019 in Athens, just before UNIC’s flagship annual Blockchain conference, Decentralized 2019”.

R3’s CEO, David E. Rutter, added: 

“We’ve always known that the success of Corda doesn’t lie only in the platform itself, but in the depth and ingenuity of the ecosystem of developers and applications built around it. That’s why introducing developers to Corda is one of the most important things we do. Working with the IFF gives us an opportunity to collaborate with sector leaders to greatly enhance the Corda ecosystem as well as help the IFF’s members engage more deeply with the incredible potential of blockchain”.
