  • Abstract 

    The use of the blockchain technology in Greek public sector appears to be beneficial for both the citizens and organisations. However, since this innovative technology is still in its infancy, a series of challenges exist in e-goverment. This paper presents the existing e-goverment infrastructure in Greece, the benefits and obstacles of the adoption of this promising trend for the recruitment process in public sector. More precisely ASEP which is an independent authority that acts as the institutional guardian for meritocracy regarding recruitment in Greek public administrator aims through the QualiChain research project to take advantage of the blockchain technology so as to improve and simplify the recruitment and competency management procedures.
