UZH founded its Blockchain Center in 2017. The organization now comprises more than 40 researchers from across the university’s faculties. It organizes events with global reach, connecting leading lights from academia and industry to foster research and collaboration.

The academic members of the center now participate in podcasts about blockchain, contribute columns to financial publications and organize summer courses around the subject. Publications to emerge from the center have titles like “Finite Blockchain Games” and “Threat Management Dashboard for a Blockchain Collaborative Defense.”

The center offers a summer course for undergraduates and postgraduates called “Deep Dive Into Blockchain: Linking Economics, Technology and Law.” The course emphasizes the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and draws on teachers from top academic institutions around the world as well as UZH itself. Some content is also provided by visiting industry figures.

UZH also offers continuing education courses in blockchain, aimed at people already working in industries where an understanding of the subject could be applicable and profitable.

Leading blockchain academics from UZH include Claudio J Tessone, who has published more than 70 articles in peer-reviewed publications. His attention has focused on cryptocurrencies since 2013, relatively early in the short history of the phenomenon. He is a chief section editor at the journal Frontiers in Blockchain. Another is Rolf H, Webe, who is not only a law professor at the university but a practicing attorney at a Zurich law firm, a board member of the Swiss Blockchain Federation and an adviser to the Swiss government on blockchain issues.
