The Fudan University is one of the most selective schools in all of China. Considering all of the popularity around blockchain technology recently, the university has chosen to collaborate with Zhongan Online Property Insurance Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Zhongren Information Technology Co., Ltd. With their contributions, the group has collectively established the Shanghai Blockchain Engineering Technology Research Center.
The new center will revolve around basic research on this evolving technology while showing the way that it can be used in various applications. By establishing this learning center, local students in the area have the ability to learn about the ways to grow the blockchain industry in Shanghai, while promoting the further development of the technology within the economy.
Along with Fudan University, there have been other Chinese universities to introduce blockchain programs into their classes. With Ripple’s support, the Blockchain Technology Research Scholarship Program was started at Institute for Fintech Research at Beijing’s Tsinghua University (THUIFR). This program recruits the top graduate students in China for the study of global blockchain regulations, along with the development of the industry.
