Welcome to the IEEE Romania Blockchain Group

IEEE Romania Blockchain Group was founded in June 2021 to focus on IEEE Blockchain Initiative (BCI), such as Pre/Standards, Education, Conferences and Events, Community Development and Outreach, Publications, and Special Projects for the East Europe Section.Blockchain is a digital distributed immutable ledger in which transactions are recorded using cryptographic techniques. This is by far the most forward-thinking, impactful, and disruptive emerging technology family that the Future Directions Committee and the IEEE has sought to embrace.

The initiative is aimed at members in Romania and Eastern Europe to invest resources in order to create a blockchain network in the medical system, and beyond. We are a community of professionals and young people passionate about technology and security. We want to develop this concept so that we have a relevant contribution in the medical area. The aim is to serve as a forum for professional networking, learning, and growth for our IEEE East Europe members in the rapidly emerging Blockchain field and to organize events covering the start-of-the-art Blockchain technology and applications.

Currently, the team consists of Chair Dr. Ing. Nicolae Goga (University Politehnica Bucharest, n.goga@rug.nl), Vice-Chair Dr. Andrei Vasilateanu (University Politehnica Bucharest, e mail andrei.vasilateanu@upb.ro) Vice-Chair Dr Constantin Viorel Marian (University Politehnica Bucharest, e-mail constantinvmarian@gmail.com), Vice Chair Dr Ramona Popa (University Politehnica of Bucharest, e-mail: popa.ramona91@yahoo.com).
