The working group on blockchain at the Computational Social Science Chair of the ETH organises regularly the meetups "Blockchain Research Zurich". These events are targeted at researchers and students from UZH and ETH and open to the general public. Note that this event is focused around academic exchange of ideas. The meetups take place once per month.
We are glad to help in the coordination of the activity with from the UZH side and host it when possible.
