Scientific research does not occur in a vacuum. Instead, scientists and society both benefit from continuous and close collaboration. In this manner, new insights and solutions from academia can be directly applied to real-world problems, allowing innovation to be incrementally tested and to positively shape the society in which we live.
This is why the Research & Knowledge Transfer Office at the University of Wuppertal regularly presents success stories in which research findings have directly benefited the public, industry, or social institutions.
Recently, Uwe Blass from the Research & Knowledge Transfer Office sat down for an interview with Bela Gipp to discuss how his group’s research on blockchain-based applications, e.g., OriginStamp, is being used and how this project impacts society.
