According to a press release earlier this week, 22 countries have signed a declaration that seeks to create a European Blockchain Partnership during the European Commission’s (EC) Digital Day 2018 held last April 10.
The Partnership will serve as a vehicle for Member States to exchange experience and expertise in preparation for the launch of EU-wide blockchain applications. The move, along with the pursuit of AI development, is part of a push by EU to become a world leader in digital technologies.
The states which have already signed are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK, with other EU and the European Economic Area expected to join soon.
