In 2018, The Spindle and HumanityX (Centre for Innovation of Leiden University) collaborate in organising a series of monthly inspirational working sessions for our mutual communities! In these sessions we’ll explore the relevance of (technological) trends for the future of development cooperation. The sessions are high in energy and always involve an expert. See what’s going on and get more grip on the implications and ideas that would work!

The Future with Blockchain technology:
What development issues can potentially be tackled using blockchain technology? Where are the frontrunners, not awaiting the debate and where have people begun already? What is more hype than practice? And what are (for now) incompatibilities and imperfections?
On the 24th of April, Yvo Hunink will give a short presentation about the inspiration document he wrote for The Spindle about Blockchain for change. Besides that Kate Dodgson from TU Delft and HumanityX (Centre for Innovation, Leiden University) will present on the basis of their research project on Blockchain for Humanitarian Aid.
