What if we change the system? An introduction to Hybrid Banking

18 mei 2018

We life in a society in transition. The call for a changing economy, a New Deal, is growing louder by the day. This is fuelled by the ongoing process of digitalisation which has led social and economic developments such a servitisation, product-service systems and dematerialisation. These developments are commonly known under the labels of the Internet of Things (IOT) and the Internet of Services (IOS). They also pave the way to create decentralised transactional systems based on ‘blockchain’ enabling the creation of a broad range of ‘cryptocurrencies’ and a new direct way of fostering transactions. This digital technology opens the possibility to work with decentralised transactions based on more than just ‘conventional’ money. As a consequence, values such as time, mobility or energy can be used as means for ‘hybrid’ and ‘peer-to-peer’ transactions between people and between businesses. They are shaped into a decentralised system called Hybrid Banking. In the third and final talk of the Chair Emile Francqui the making of such a system, including possible transactional means, and the consequences for sustainability, circularity and inclusivity will be elaborated upon.

Social Entrepreneurship: Be Engaged in the solutions of the future

28 september 2018

Welcome to the WEconomy Trends that depict the future (1)

1 juni 2018

Our world is socially, institutionally, and economically in turmoil. This is generally referred to as a transition: a period of fundamental change lasting several decades. In this first seminar, (one out of three) an overview will be provided of seven corresponding so-called ‘slow’ trends. These are trends that will mark the next decade. Together, these trends will shape our future economy in an unforeseen way. This future economy is called the WEconomy. Based on this concept of a WEconomy, several scenarios will be brought forward that might or might not emerge in the near future. At the end of this seminar, it will be argued that the rise of the WEconomy implies a changing perception on value creation and business strategies. As a whole, this leads to fundamental changes in business models.
