Blockchain - Knowledge Assessment for Entrepreneurs
This survey is part of an Erasmus+ project (Strategic Partnership Project: 2018-1-RO01-KA203-049510): BLOCKS - Blockchain for Entrepreneurs.

BLOCKS creates a networked platform of collaboration on curriculum development for universities and companies in Romania, Italy, Latvia, Estonia and Greece to develop non-traditional, blended-learning courses, tailored for an Industry 4.0 world, focused on providing teachers, students and entrepreneurs with knowledge and skills on the blockchain.
BLOCKS is implemented between 2018 - 2021 by The Bucharest University of Economic Studies (Romania), Ovidius University of Constanta (Romania), TalTech (Estonia), ZITEC (Romania), VITECO (Italy), Mathemagenesis (Greece) and BDA (Latvia).
To do this, we need a proper assessment of the knowledge related to blockhain in our respective ecosystems. Therefore, your input in this survey is solely used for research and scholarly purposes and for the tailoring of a proper curriculum and teaching materials. To provide global comparisons in terms of skills, the survey may contain questions similar to The Deloitte Global Blockchain Survey 2018.

The assessment procedure involves filling an online survey that will take approximately 15 minutes.
Your responses will be confidential and we do not collect identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address. We will do our best to keep your information confidential. All data is stored in a password protected electronic format. To help protect your confidentiality, the surveys will not contain information that will personally identify you.

If you have any questions about the research study or the project, please contact Roxana Voicu-Dorobantu, Ph.D., project manager, roxana.voicu@rei.ase.ro
