They have already participated in pilot tests of the system of remittances with the help of technology and even introduced their own similar platform for secure information sharing. And before that a research center has created a program that detects vulnerability of the source code and notify the developer. Now, Fujitsu is engaged in research on blockchain technology in a newly opened innovation centre in Brussels.
