Clemens Brunner from the Center for Secure Energy Informatics established valuable contacts at the first Vienna Blockchain Summer School.

Brunner got to talk to Akash Madhusudan from the COSIC Research Group about future cooperation opportunities. In a follow-up meeting, a closer participation in the project SNIPPET will be discussed, where the Center for Secure Energy Informatics is currently in the advisory committee. The project investigates mechanisms to exchange energy between neighbours and looks into solutions for safer local electricity markets.
