The Australian Government has reached out to the blockchain community to help identify opportunities for blockchain adoption in the supply chain and credentialing sectors.
The Australian National Blockchain Roadmap Steering Committee has reached out to the wider blockchain community in order to create working groups to explore specific applications of the technology within the supply chain, agricultural and educational sectors.
The invitation on the Australian Government’s Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources’ website asks interested parties to submit their expressions of interest before the 22nd of July.
The working groups will explore and identify use cases and economic opportunities as well as barriers that may prevent adoption across Australia, presenting their findings to the committee by early 2021.
Who’s steering this committee?
Established in Feb 2020 by Australia’s Ministry of Industry, Science and Technology, the committee consists of “representatives from government, industry, research and other sectors” and oversees the implementation of the roadmap, which was released earlier this year.
