Highlights from the 5th “Blockchain in Supply Chain Management” Expert Group meeting

Our 5th meeting of the expert group “Blockchain Technology in Supply Chain Management” took place in the vibrant Blockchain Hub Trust Square located in a wonderful building in the Bahnhofstrasse Zurich.

The first speech was given by Malik El Bay from the think tank Dezentrum (Trust Square resident) on a project in the food supply chain. The project was conducted together with Foodways and the University of Zurich and was supported by the BLW (Bundesamt für Landwirtschaft). The expert group discussed possible future research directions for sustainable supply chains proposed by Malik.

In the second part, Sacha Uhlmann, the Chief Product Officer of the famous Swiss startup modum, presented us some deep insights into modum seasoned with some personal anecdotes. Sacha showed us the transformation of modum: from the (over-) ambitious beginnings as a young startup to a mature and market-oriented company. Especially interesting were the comments of a participating expert from SAP, as they are partners from modum.

As always, the participants asked numerous questions which led to fascinating discussions. The apéro served as a continuation of these discussions and concluded our fifth expert group meeting.

We are looking forward to have more of these inspiring discussions in our sixth meeting in the beginning of July.
