February 2nd, 2022 - The Algorand Foundation today announces our partnership with UC Berkeley to support the Berkeley Center for Responsible, Decentralized Intelligence (RDI). This exciting partnership with UC Berkeley is part of the Foundation's University Programme.
“Our partnership with RDI will support their ongoing efforts in developing blockchain and DeFi certification courses,” explains Hugo Krawczyk, Principal Researcher at Algorand Foundation. “We need to provide the next generation of blockchain natives with educational tools so they can guide real-world deployments. RDI - with its proven track record of delivering successful courses in blockchain technology - is the perfect partner for this.”
“Berkeley RDI is honored to partner with Algorand Foundation’s University Programme and further build upon our new Berkeley RDI Center’s efforts to act as a hub and platform for collaborations globally with other organizations & researchers, as exemplified in leading the first DeFi MOOC with thousands of students enrolled from 30+ countries and our non-dilutive Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator open to teams around the world. We look forward to working with the Algorand Foundation and their community in the year ahead”, added Jocelyn Weber Phipps, Deputy Director, UC Berkeley RDI.
The Algorand Foundation is committed to building a truly global blockchain ecosystem and our University Programme has supported other education and research projects in academia such the Algorand Fintech Innovation Hub at the University of Cape Town.
