The goal of the re­search in­sti­tute is to bundle the in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary com­pet­ence of the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness. Only through an in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary ap­proach, which con­siders the tech­nical possib­il­it­ies to­gether with eco­nomic, so­cial and legal aspects, the po­ten­tial of this new tech­no­logy can be met.

The Re­search In­sti­tute is self-fin­anced. Cur­rently, we have the pro­jects on the fol­low­ing top­ics.

Block­chain & Sus­tain­ab­il­ity

Token En­gin­eer­ing

Assigned Re­search­ers

The re­search in­sti­tute is made up of WU pro­fess­ors from the areas of busi­ness in­form­at­ics, busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion, eco­nom­ics, tax­a­tion and law, who will work to­gether with ex­ternal part­ners to ex­plore these ques­tions in a mul­ti-s­take­holder ap­proach.

To guar­an­tee a seam­less and ap­plied re­search, we have an ad­vis­ory board made up of people from the busi­ness who are close to Block­chain tech­no­lo­gies and still have a strong aca­demic back­ground.
