Fujitsu, KPMG and 14 new members join Blockchain Research Institute

Blockchain Research Institute (BRI), a Canada-based blockchain research initiative led Don Tapscott and Alex Tapscott, has announced the addition of 16 new organisations as its founding members.

With this, BRI’s founding membership has grown to 44. Launched earlier this year, BRI is a multi-million dollar Toronto-based research initiative that is undertaking the definitive investigation of blockchain strategy, opportunities, and implementation challenges over the next year.

“We are pleased to welcome these forward-thinking organizations to our initiative,” says Executive Chairman Don Tapscott, who along with Alex Tapscott is a co-founder of the Institute. “The rapid growth in our membership is a strong indication of the importance that companies and government agencies are placing on understanding the impact that blockchain technology will have on their business and the world.”

The new Founding Members include: Barrick Gold, Bell Canada, Capgemini Canada, Cimcorp, Deloitte Canada, the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), FedEx, Fujitsu, the Institute on Governance, Interac/Acxsys, KPMG LLP, Loblaw Companies Limited, MKS Switzerland, Moog, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care, and Tencent.

In its official release, BRI said that its team of over 50 experts is exploring the impact of blockchain on a number of key sectors — including financial services, manufacturing, energy and technology — and is examining how it will change the way companies are managed.

Last month, the Institute released research projects authored by Research Director Michael Casey, entitled The Token Economy, and Faculty Member Jeremy Epstein on Blockchain and the CMO.
