Leading the
blockchain revolution
in the middle east

about bri middle east

The Blockchain Research Institute Middle East (BRIME) is a Middle Eastern think-tank initiated by Konnect & Co and the Blockchain Research Institute.

We bring together the Middle East’s top industry leaders, academics, policy-makers, entrepreneurs and researchers to undertake ground-breaking research on blockchain technology and to bridge the gap between the technological functionality of blockchain and the real market need. We focus on the strategic implications of blockchain technology on business, government and society in the Middle East. We provide member organizations with in-depth research exploring the opportunities, challenge and implementation hurdles of blockchain in their industry, as well as the impact of technology on corporate management.

Funded by a membership consisting of international corporations and government agencies, our research program is founded on 100+ projects documenting the strategic implications of blockchain on business, government and society. Our new program BRI 2021, introduces new deliverables in addition to our research, designed to help our members not just navigate the blockchain revolution, but lead it.
