Team and academic research council

The IF supports the creation of state-of-the-art technologies for distributed ledgers, which will be the backbone of a future automated, data-driven society. With this monumental task comes a growing responsibility to monitor and control this potentially world-changing technology.

The IF was founded by David Sønstebø, Sergey Ivancheglo (cfb), Dominik Schiener and Prof. Serguei Popov. A board of directors was created to set the vision and strategy and a supervisory board to oversee their work. In addition, an outstanding research team has been established, one of the largest in DLT organizations, consisting of world-leading research professors, PhD students and scientists.

To provide academic oversight of all work, a Research Council has been formed. The council will work closely with research departments to set strategic technological direction, provide academic oversight to IOTA research, evaluate academic partners and allocate funding, and oversee collaboration with universities and other research institutions. The Research Council is formed of outstanding scientists who are at the leading edge of their fields. The Council will not only provide invaluable input into research strategy and initiatives, but will also monitor the quality of research to ensure high academic standards.
