About us

Our research focus is on Distributed Ledger Technology and its applications. Research areas include consensus protocols, smart contracts, the tokenization of assets and the fundamental impact that digitalization will have on the future of our economy. We attach great importance to a comprehensive and interdisciplinary analysis because we are convinced that many economic issues can only be answered if the researchers deal with the underlying technology in depth. The professorship, funded by Credit Suisse Asset Management (Switzerland), is part of the Faculty of Business and Economics.
