We are a team of researchers at King’s Business School (London, UK) conducting a global research project on professional collaborations involving software engineers and finance professionals in blockchain firms.
Through interviews and qualitative data collection techniques, we seek to understand how collaborations across the fields of finance and software engineers are established, how they look in practice, and in what ways knowledge is or is not transferred across professional boundaries.
Do these two professional groups learn from each other? Are knowledge and expertise transferred across groups? Do different regulatory regimes facilitate or hinder such transfers? And what are the consequences for cryptoasset and blockchain firms?
The research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the UK's largest organisation for funding research on economic and social issues. The project reference is ES/T008237/1.
