The project study deals with the analysis and development of impact token models, which are used to finance projects with socially and ecologically positive effects (“impact”). The project team develops performance indicators that make the non-financial effects of the project (e.g. KWh solar power) tangible for impact-oriented investors. The goal is to develop a blockchain-based crowd investment token model for the implementation of energy infrastructure projects.

Basically, our project is aimed at all students at the Bochum University of Applied Sciences. Since the project study is strongly related to sustainability, the project team is made up of students from the master's program "Applied Sustainability" and the bachelor's program "Sustainable Development". Especially in the context of token modeling and blockchain technology, there is interest in establishing interfaces to disciplines such as computer science or business administration.
Joining the project team is possible at the beginning of each semester. If you would like to have an insight into our work, please feel free to come to our project meeting (for more information please contact Verena Kühling, see below).
No, no previous knowledge is required to enter the project. However, the interest in blockchain technology, green finance, smart off-grid systems and in renewable energies are advantageous. In addition, you should be ready to familiarize yourself with the topics mentioned above.
Then feel free to contact us!
