Tezos Korea Foundation Partners With Yonsei University for Blockchain Development

The South Korean branch of the Tezos Foundation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Yonsei University to collaboratively work on the development of blockchain talents, says a Tezos official press release published Nov. 21.

The new agreement between the Tezos Korea Foundation and Digital Society Research Center at Yonsei University in Seoul aims to provide “blockchain education cooperation, training of OCaml [Objective Calm] and smart contract experts.” The MoU is primarily focused on human resources and education in the blockchain technology industry. The press release states:

“Through this agreement, both sides will strengthen the expertise of the blockchain and education expertise, and discuss various cooperation opportunities to lead the blockchain field.”

Back this summer, the Tezos Foundation had already announced a public call for research grants in July. Later, Tezos provided financial grants to four research institutions for blockchain tech and smart contracts development, as Cointelegraph reported Aug. 10.

Also this summer, the Tezos Foundation announced that PricewaterhouseCoopers Switzerland (PwC) — one of the four largest professional services networks in the world, commonly known as the “Big Four” — would conduct an external audit of its finances and operations, Cointelegraph wrote Jul. 24.

Previously this week, Japanese banking giant Sumitomo Mitsui (SMBC), the Ethereum Foundation, and the University of Tokyo jointly announced an education course, dubbed “Blockсhain Innovation Donation Course,” in the university’s graduate school of engineering, Cointelegraph reported Nov. 21.
