Professors Rubipiara Cavalcante Fernandes and Carlos Ernani da Veiga from the Federal Institute of Santa Catarina, Brazil visited the laboratories of the BISITE Research Group and met with its director, Dr. Juan Manuel Corchado Rodríguez, who presented some of the projects that the group is developing.
The visit was an opportunity to discuss the possibility of creating future joint projects in the field of the energy sector and traceability based on blockchain technology, given the professors’ academic backgrounds and our experience as a research group.
