Wholistic World Innovation Trophy to find its home in Barcelona

Brussels, Barcelona – June 13, 2022: The annual Wholistic World Innovation Trophy, WWIT, will find its home in Barcelona during the Democracy4All (D4A) conference. Due to Covid-19 the first WWIT ever in 2021 had not yet been formally announced and will be presented together with the second WWIT laureate on November 10. From next season, the CBCat (Blockchain Center of Catalonia) will be represented on the WWIT jury board.

This is part of an agreement between WWIT initiator, Diplomatic World Institute and the CBCat, which organizes the conference. Within this strategic partnership DWI will also have a branded thematic block with a keynote and a panel discussion that is extended by a separate roundtable starting at this year's conference in November 10 and 11 at La Llotja del Mar in Barcelona. The topic and line-up of this year's block will be announced along with the D4A conference programme.

Dieter Brockmeyer, cofounder and director Innovation & TIME (technology, internet, media, and entertainment) of the Diplomatic World Institute says: "This cooperation is a major step forward and D4A is the right partner with the right target group to further develop WWIT into something unique."

Vasilisa Marinchuk, director international relations and partnerships of the Centre Blockchain of Catalunya, the D4A managing director, says: "We believe that the partnership with the Diplomatic World Institute will allow us to involve even more official representatives of states and we are excited to host the first World Wholistic Innovation Trophy ceremony on our stage."
