The project is executed by a consortium of partner universities and related entities mainly; Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University - Germany (project coordinator), Fondazione Politecnico di Milano - Italy, Jožef Stefan Institute -Slovenia, Vytautas Magnus University – Lithuania, European Distance and E-Learning Network (EDEN), Knowledge 4 All Foundation (K4A) - UK , Knowledge Innovation Centre (KIC)and Tampere University. The project aims at transformation of higher education throughout Europe by making education more flexible and competence based in order to fulfil the learner needs better. The role of existing and emerging ICT in achieving these goals are a significant aspect of the project, mainly exploring innovative technologies that could enable them, with primary focus on the blockchain technology that forms the basis of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin.
