SmartDLP – New Research Project starts at SBA
Nicholas Stifter (PhD candidate at SBA Research) started his Industrial PhD research project at SBA Research in September.
SmartDLP – Systematic Analysis and Assessment of Distributed Ledger Protocols and their Consensus Mechanisms – will focus on existing DLT protocol (DLP) designs and their respective consensus mechanisms, and provide novel systematic expositions, analyses and evaluations as well as necessary tools, such as simulation environments, to aid in this process.
About the Funding Programme:
The FFG Industrial PhD Programme is sponsored by Nationalstiftung für Forschung, Technologie und Entwicklung and Österreich-Fonds. The focus lies on funding industrial PhD projects to improve qualifications of research and innovation staff in companies and non-university research institutions. An Industrial PhD project is performed by an employee of an Austrian company/non-university research institution, who is enrolled as a PhD student at a university during the whole project.
This project is led by SBA Research and supervised by Aljosha Judmayer.
