The webinar will dive deep into several key areas. First, panelists will explore the current state of blockchain standardisation efforts around the world, with a particular focus on the contrasting approaches taken by the European Union and the United States. This comparative analysis will provide valuable insights into the different priorities and challenges faced by each region.

The discussion will then shift to explore how standardisation can act as a catalyst for the digitisation of public services. By establishing common ground and technical specifications, standardisation can streamline data flow between government agencies and create a more interconnected ecosystem. This, in turn, can pave the way for the development of smarter cities that are more sustainable and responsive to the needs of their citizens.

Finally, the webinar will address the importance of striking a balance between innovation and responsible development in the field of blockchain. Technological advancements are exciting, but they must be accompanied by ethical considerations and a focus on user needs. This ensures that blockchain technology is harnessed for the public good while mitigating potential risks.
