Tezos Foundation Issues Financial Grants to Research Groups



The Tezos Foundation has revealed that it would be issuing financial grants to research groups for the development of blockchain tech and smart contracts.

The move was publicized in an official press release.

The Foundation would be delivering grants to four research institutions, namely Cornell University, the University of Beira Interior, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and France-IOI.

Emin Gün Sirer would be heading the Cornell University team to “develop protocols that may be applied to Tezos,” paying close attention to sharding, and Portugal’s University of Beira Interior would be getting four grants for two master’s theses and two Ph.D. projects that are concentrating on logging events of robots in factory environments and backing for machine-checked smart contracts respectively.

The grant for France-IOI’s “will support the education and training of current and future Tezos developers,” and the grant for Decentralized et Consulting, LLC. (“Decet”), a research group of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is geared at establishing an “accessible online developer documentation resource for the Tezos ecosystem.”

Earlier this year, the Foundation had made a statement that it would hold a call for research proposals through an open grantmaking process.
