Bloomen Round Table Event in Cyprus: What the experts say

On the 2nd of May 2019, 16 distinguished professionals gathered at the Blockchain Round Table event at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus, organized by Bloomen and facilitated by ANTENNA.

The event was the first part of a series of community events that are described in the work plan, as a deliverable through WP6. The scope of the event was adapted to be more in line with the current state of affairs in the media and blockchain sectors.

This was a three hour event which was split in two parts. The first one incorporated presentations by the Bloomen consortium, regarding the use cases on copyrights management in Music, Photo and WebTV, the technical implementations as well as the more business oriented aspects and the Alastria blockchain environment that the consortium solutions are built on. The second part was a 90 minute discussion, based on an indicative timeline designed by Michalis Odysseos, digital development manager of ANTENNA, who was also the coordinator of these sessions.

The discussions covered many different aspects of the blockchain industry, ranging from copyrights management to government strategy, finance related matters and also further research and opportunities.

The event, which was captured by the production department of ANTENNA for TV and digital coverage and dissemination, had an international flair as there were not just participants that are generally based in Cyprus, but also from Barcelona as well as Hong Kong. It is estimated that more than 100,000 people had the chance to see the TV and Digital broadcasts relevant to the event.

It is expected that the insights shared at the event but also the awareness that was created around it, will prove to be crucial to the progress of the Bloomen project.
