ARK Will Be Presenting At The University of Geneva

ARK’s CTO, François-Xavier Thoorens, will be presenting at the University of Geneva on 19 March 2018 about Blockchain technology and ARK by the invitation from Jean-Henry Morin of the Computer Science Department at the UNIGE.

The University of Geneva (UNIGE) is a public research university located in Geneva, Switzerland and is consistently ranked as one of the top universities in the world.

UNIGE offers nearly 300 degree programs and is a leading research university and a member of the League of European Research Universities. Along with other renowned research-led institutions such as the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and Imperial College London, UNIGE claims associations with 10 Nobel Prize winners.

UNIGE promotes strong links with international organizations such as the United Nations and WHO (World Health Organization), as well as partnerships with several global universities including Princeton University in the US, Yonsei University in South Korea and the University of Sydney in Australia.

Jean-Henry Morin from the Centre Universitaire d’Informatique (CUI, Computer Science Department) in 2017 started a new masters programme focused on blockchain technology. In this context he invited the ARK CTO to teach about mechanics and economics driving the new blockchained business, and how ARK is dedicated to be the platform of choice.

Words from Jean-Henry Morin from University of Geneva, inviting us to this event:

We are glad to welcome Francois-Xavier Thoorens from ARK Ecosystem to share his perspective and experience on Blockchain technology in the context of our series of advanced seminars on industrial and emerging issues in information systems and service science. This technical presentation to an audience of master students in computer science is a good way to approach synergies between academia and the industry.
