Blockchain technology for internationalisation

4 th June of 2021 From 12:30 to 13:30 (CEST) – online sesión

Organised by Badajoz Export Acceleration Hub

From FUNDECYT-PCTEx, as a partner of the Interreg Sudoe NOVExport project, we invite you to this webinar to bring SMEs and entrepreneurs closer to how Blockchain technology can be used for the management of international trade, allowing the secure digitisation of procedures from smart contracts, inventory management, traceability of goods, among others, reducing the number of intermediaries in the management of foreign trade, making interactions more secure and transparent.


New technologies, such as blockchain, are bringing about substantial changes in transactions, international transport logistics and regulatory control, challenging business models as well as traditional border control mechanisms and public policies.

Blockchain is a secure, virtual database that provides information about transactions taking place within a group, such as a corporation, a network of suppliers, an investment pool or an international supply chain. This platform provides a distributed, unalterable, encrypted and extremely secure record, which is at the same time transparent and accessible to all participants.
