AlastriaEADA continues to break new ground by offering training to managers and professionals who would like to introduce Blockchain technology in their organisations and explore new business opportunities. Following EADA’s recent collaboration agreement with Alastria, which is a non-profit association involved in promoting disruptive innovation in business, the participants of the Postgraduate course in Blockchain, DLT and the Crypto economy and those participating in the Supply Chain & Blockchain programme will have the opportunity to learn how to implement Blockchain technology and DLT in their organisations.

Participants of both programmes will take part in innovation projects alongside members of Alastria. In doing so, they will learn how disruptive technology is introduced in different companies, the main problems with its implementation and the solutions which are applied in each phase. EADA students will also find out about Alastria’s current research projects and how Spanish companies are adapting to the digital economy

According to EADA’s dean, Miquel Espinosa, “the agreement with Alastria demonstrates a firm commitment to promoting disruptive technologies in the business world”. Montse Guardia, head of Alastria, adds that “this association is a meeting point of knowledge thanks to its members. EADA now joins us bringing its experience as a centre of reference for training new generations in a digital and disruptive environment”.

Both programmes will enter their second year on 7th October with feedback being positive from the first year’s graduates. They gained a solid grounding in the philosophy behind Blockchain and disruptive technologies. They learnt about the leading institutions, consortiums and companies in the market as well as the current and future implications of Blockchain and the Crypto economy (new dynamics in the cryptocurrency market). They also saw how smart contracts are changing the way business is done on a global scale as well as the changes in legislation brought about by Blockchain.
