AlbionVC X Founders Factory bring a monthly breakfast club together to discuss emerging themes within the world of digital health.

The February edition of the HealthTech Breakfast Club was focused on DeSci – Decentralised Science discussing the opportunity for blockchain in science and research.

Special thank you to our panellists Julia Hawkins (Local Globe), Lina Zakarauskaite (StrideVC) and Ian Emerson (Fabric VC) who shared insights and helped build structure for the breakfast discussion.

We covered how to think about the space and the opportunities across scientific research, scientific data and health data, the technical elements of tokenisation (across currency, pseudoequity and work tokens) and what needs to be true to achieve this huge vision. It was clear that there is a huge opportunity for a decentralised approach to scientific research and that we can align the incentives of all stakeholders – from researchers and funders to clinicians and patients. There are certainly open questions – how to deal with regulatory and legal challenges across geographies, how IP works within a decentralised system and where traditional institutions will sit in decentralised projects. Yet there are companies building solutions to these challenges with potential to transform scientific and health research.
