Anchorage Digital and IEEE Portugal Section Partner on Blockchain Education Events
Anchorage Digital and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Portugal Section are pleased to announce a partnership focused on educating the next generation of engineers and technologists about blockchain, distributed systems, and cryptography.
Together, Anchorage and IEEE Portugal (with more than 1,300 members in the country) plan to host a series of IEEE networking events to educate members on the technical aspects of crypto and careers in crypto and blockchain technologies.
Two upcoming events will kick off our joint goals in advancing technology and building a global community of engineers:
- IEEE Portugal’s Leadership Camp from 1–2 October, 2022, with IEEE sharing details on social media.
- A webinar series called “Engineering in Discussion” scheduled in December 2022 will enhance IEEE members’ technical knowledge about crypto assets.
“An important part of Anchorage’s workforce is based in Portugal. We intend to increase that presence and continuously nurture Portuguese tech talent by partnering with high-profile institutions like IEEE Portugal,” said Diogo Mónica, President and Co-Founder of Anchorage Digital.
“IEEE’s mission is to advance technology for the benefit of humanity, and we are proud to partner with Anchorage so our members can learn more about how crypto is changing the global financial system,” said Rodolfo Oliveira, Chair of IEEE Portugal Section.
With twenty percent of its employees based in Portugal, Anchorage has a significant presence in the country and is actively hiring for a number of roles, including engineers and other technical staff.
Partnering with the IEEE supports Anchorage’s ambitious hiring goals by strengthening our relationship with Portugal’s emerging technical talent at the university and graduate level, and building much-needed literacy around cryptography and blockchain.
