Section II: Object
Study on opportunity and feasibility of an EU blockchain infrastructure — SMART 2017/0044.
The EU Commission is looking carefully at blockchain developments with the objective of setting the right conditions for the advent of an open, innovative, trustworthy, transparent, and EU law compliant data and transactional environment.
This feasibility study will be carried out to assess the opportunity, benefits, and challenges of creating at EU level an enabling framework or infrastructure supporting blockchain-based services.
The study will assess if, when and how blockchain technologies may help public authorities to deliver European services and implement policies in an optimised way.
The study will provide a clear understanding of what type of intervention is more suited and on the opportunity, conditions and value added to support a EU blockchain infrastructure.
To do so, the study will examine the existing initiatives at national or local level and will address how to dimension such an infrastructure at EU level, including which services could run on such infrastructure.
