QualiChain: Blockchain for education and employment qualifications
INESC-ID is one of the ten partners of Qualichain, a European project focused on the assessment of the implications at technical, political, socio-economic, legal and cultural levels of Blockchain technology for verifying education and employment qualifications. Also, QualiChain specifies in the “impact – in terms of benefits and risks – of the prescribed solution’s utilization”.
QualiChain targets the creation, piloting and evaluation of a decentralised platform for storing, sharing and verifying education and employment qualifications and focuses on the assessment of the potential of blockchain technology, algorithmic techniques and computational intelligence for disrupting the domain of public education, as well as its interfaces with private education, the labour market, public sector administrative procedures and the wider socio-economic developments.
INESC-ID is in charge of designing some of the components of the platform and participates in one of the pilots. This research project is coordinated at INESC-ID by Miguel Pupo Correia.
