Smart Contracts: Comparative Analysis of Regulatory Frameworks
21 SEP 2021 / online
Smart contracts increasingly gain importance, for DLT-transactions in financial markets (DLT securities), for supply chain businesses or for the acquisition of art (NFT). Since international legal instruments governing smart contracts do not exist, national law is applicable. The three presentations analyse the legal frameworks in different jurisdictions: Switzerland, Europe, Turkey, USA and United Kingdom.
Supply Chain Think Tank
16 SEP 2021 / Zurich
Here’s the agenda for the upcoming Supply Chain Think Tank session: We're going to dive into the topic of Supply Chain Resilience by starting off with an inspiring Lightning Talk by Hilti. They'll share insights into a model that guides them and their teams on their journey to becoming resilient and making the supply chain organization at Hilti fit for the next disruptive events – especially for those that still lie beyond the horizon of what we can imagine. We will also focus on Digital in Supply Chains. Miebach will present key insights into what we Supply Chain Executives need to know when it comes to a topic that is most likely on all our agendas but difficult to fully grasp. We’ll also try to get our heads around the question regarding which specific “Technologies & Solutions” can support Supply Chains in becoming more resilient and what we need to do to embark on the journey of “Digital Transformation”.
