KOIOS is an experimental research and development project initiated by the research group New Finance of the Business, Finance & Marketing (BFM) faculty at The Hague University (THUAS). Its aim is to experiment with and to build a blockchain-based open education infrastructure to enable new ways of (free) education, knowledge sharing, knowledge development and accreditation.
Such an infrastructure might be needed to deal with three developments the faculty BFM, other faculties at THUAS and other traditional (international) educational institutes currently face:
1) increasing innovation of educational content outside traditional educational institutes;
2) increasing flexibility of education outside traditional education institutes;
3) increasing availability of free or low costs education and the rise of new funding models of education.
