The Blockchain Research Accelerator (BRA) uniquely positions itself at the interface between academic research, industry and the public sector to advance the global discourse in the transformative fields of blockchain applications, regulation and adoption.
BRA offers a platform for Bachelor, Master and PhD students to complement their academic thesis supervision with an expert team at the forefront of blockchain applications and research.
Following the thesis submission, we work together with the students to prepare and release publications on their topics and get the work in front of industry leaders in the blockchain space. We aim to make the academic research of BSc, MSc and PhD students more relevant to real world applications and thereby accelerate the adoption of innovative blockchain applications globally.
We bring together experts from different industries, the public sector and academia. They all share an interest in blockchain technology and worked together in several client engagements and conferences. Below you will find more information about each of our experts.
Specifically for this initiative, we won Prof. Dr. Andranik Tumasjan (University of Mainz, former TU Munich), Prof. Carol Alexander (University of Sussex), Prof. Dr. Philipp Sandner (Frankfurt School of Finance & Management) and Prof. Dr. Dominik Engel (FH Salzburg) to support you during this Blockchain Research Accelerator. All professors have supervised blockchain related research by students for many years.
We have extensive experience in creating insights and relevant content for publications within the blockchain community as well as for industry leaders. We want to take the opportunity to develop content with you that really matters and put the spotlight on your work.
