Ripple宣布向大学区块链研究计划捐资5000万美元

近日,Ripple宣布一项大学区块链研究计划(UBRI)。根据该计划,Ripple将与多个世界顶尖大学合作,支持和加速区块链、加密货币和数字支付领域的学术研究、技术开发和创新。

据悉,Ripple已经承诺向首批UBRI合作机构提供5000万美元资金、专业知识和技术资源支持。此后,这17个高校将确定自己的研究课题和重点关注领域,同时还与Ripple:

  1. 在研究和技术开发方面进行合作,以促进区块链的广泛理解和创新。
  2. 创建新课程,以满足学生对区块链、加密货币和其他FinTech主题的学习需求。
  3. 在共同感兴趣的主题上激发学生、教师技术专家和商业领袖之间的想法和对话。

首批入选的这17个UBRI合作伙伴来自不同的地域、市场和学科背景。

例如,随着公共部门监管环境的不断发展,普林斯顿大学的信息技术政策中心(CITP)正在创建的UBRI计划就将针对加密货币和区块链在美国和全世界的政策影响展开影响。

而在宾夕法尼亚大学,UBRI每年都会在新成立的沃顿商学院双学位课程中为精选的MBA-MS候选人提供支持。这笔资金旨在优先考虑从事区块链或加密货币行业的学生。

作为UBRI的一部分,Ripple还将参与麻省理工学院计算机科学与人工智能实验室的新FinTech计划,该计划由金融服务行业的近十几家公司组成,与CSAIL的116名研究人员合作,研究区块链、加密货币、网络安全和全球支付等问题。

而在欧洲,荷兰代尔夫特理工大学和卢森堡大学也通过UBRI的帮助,在其计算机科学与工程系内部建立了一个新的区块链研究计划。

Ripple announced their University Blockchain Research initiative, a collaboration with top universities around the world to support and accelerate academic research, technical development and innovation blockchain, cryptocurrency and digital payments.

In launching this initiative Ripple has committed over $50 million USD in funding, subject matter expertise and technical resources to UBRI’s first wave of university partners —17 prestigious institutions around the world. These schools will determine their own research topics and priority areas of focus, while also partnering with Ripple to:

  1. Collaborate on research and technical development that will stimulate widespread understanding and innovation in blockchain.
  2. Create new curriculum to meet high student demand for learning about blockchain, cryptocurrency and other FinTech topics.
  3. Stimulate ideas and dialog among students, faculty, technologists and business leaders on topics of shared interest.

The initial UBRI partners represent a broad cross-section of geographies and markets, as well as a rich blend of academic disciplines.

For example, as the regulatory conversation continues to evolve in the public sector, the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP) at Princeton University is creating an UBRI program that will study the policy impact of cryptocurrencies and blockchain in the U.S. and around the world.

At The University of Pennsylvania, UBRI is supporting select MBA-MS candidates each year in a newly established Wharton-Engineering dual-degree program. This funding aims to prioritize students working on blockchain or cryptocurrency.

As part of UBRI, Ripple is also participating in MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab’s new FinTech initiative made up of a nearly a dozen companies across the financial services industry to work with groups of CSAIL’s 116+ researchers on topics like blockchain, cryptocurrencies, cybersecurity and global payments.

In Europe, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and the University of Luxembourg are building a new blockchain research program inside their Departments of Computer Science and Engineering with the help of UBRI.

UBRI’s complete list of partners is as follows:

  1. Australian National University College of the Law
  2. CITP at Princeton
  3. CSAIL at MIT
  4. Delft University of Technology (Netherlands)
  5. Fundação Getulio Vargas (Brazil)
  6. Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley
  7. IIT Bombay
  8. International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H)
  9. Korea University
  10. McCombs School of Business, UT-Austin
  11. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  12. The University of Pennsylvania
  13. UCL (University College London)
  14. University of Luxembourg
  15. University of Nicosia (Cyprus)
  16. University of Oregon
  17. University of Waterloo
