Fagligt indhold:While blockchain-based applications such as Bitcoin are still in their infancy, a dramatic increase of industrial and academic interest in blockchain technology is evident. In addition, start-ups, as well as industry initiatives, are presently working intensely on blockchain-based innovations, making the technology one of the most promising drivers of innovation across many sectors and industries. However, the design and implementation of blockchain-based systems requires know-how in various areas, as well as mindful consideration of larger economic and societal issues.

This course will focus on educating participants in blockchain technology to develop conceptual as well as practical solutions and learn how to generate new theoretical insights based upon. The participants will learn how blockchain technology works and how it disrupts existing business models. They will gain insights into paradigmatic changes occurring from economic, organizational, and computer science viewpoints. As learning outcomes, the participants
will receive computer science, information systems, and business knowledge in order to analyze existing business processes and their potential to convert them into blockchain-based solutions. In so doing, they will be able to co-create new blockchain-based economic systems. 

The course will consist of both lectures and exercise sessions. The lectures focus on theoretical concepts with a focus on Blockchain economics. The concepts will help participants to reflect on current topics around Blockchain. In the exercise sessions, participants will work in groups, discussing and analyzing course relevant topics and also relate them to their personal experiences in their modern IT-based working environments
