Can Blockchain help to establish a safe and fast asylum process? Together with the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), the Fraunhofer Project Group for Business Information Systems is evaluating this vision as part of the pilot project at the AnKER-center in Dresden.
In addition to the interview with BAMF Vice President Dr. Markus Richter and Prof. Dr. Gilbert Fridgen, co-founder of our Fraunhofer BlockchainLab, the whitepaper provides interesting insights.
