The South Korean arm of the Tezos Foundation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Yonsei University for the development of talent and unique skills in blockchain technology, according to a press release published by Tezos.
The version reads:
"Thanks to this agreement, both parties will strengthen the competences of blockchain and competence in education and will discuss various opportunities for cooperation to lead the blockchain sector".
The new agreement, which is between the Seoul Digital Society research center at Yonsei University and the Tezos Korea Foundation, will seek to provide "blockchain cooperation, education, training of Objective Calm and experts in the development of smart contracts".
The Tezos Foundation, at the beginning of this year, announced an invitation to submit grant proposals later, providing aid to four separate institutions for the development of blockchain technology and smart contracts. Three other beneficiaries received grants for the development of tools and apps for the stability of the blockchain ecosystem last month. The recipients are Papers and Ackee and contributor and active developer Luiz Milfont.
Ackee will help develop a Tezos development kit for the iOS platform, while Papers a cryptographic portfolio, will use the grant to develop an open source library that will also be available for use as a development toolkit.
Milfont, a Brazilian IT developer, has also been selected for his contributions to the blockchain ecosystem. He developed TezosJ's SDK library, which makes it easy for Android developers to create Android apps that work well with their Tezos blockchain. It is expected that it will create more libraries that will help ensure smoother use of Tezos as a tool for software and platform development.
The Foundations also signed one of the four largest professional service providers PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) to conduct an external audit of their finances.
At the beginning of this week, the Japanese bank Sumitomo Mitsui (SMBC), in collaboration with the Tokyo University, and the Ethereum Foundation, has launched a training course called "Blockchain Innovation Donation Course", to be taught at the graduate school of engineering in the university. The course lasts three years and is designed to help students who would like to start blockchain-based activities.
