SICPA and UNITAR establish cooperation to issue digital certificates for hackathons
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and SICPA SA have signed an agreement to issue digital certificates for hackathons.
SICPA‘s CERTUS® solution, which secures physical and digital diplomas and certificates through the application of a tamper-proof QR code, has been selected for its market proven technology. The agreement between UNITAR, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, and SICPA will enable the issuance of secure digital certificates for the participants of the global hackathon activities that UNITAR is co-designing and implementing in collaboration with the Open Geneva Association.
The growing number of UNITAR beneficiaries, and, in particular, hackathon beneficiaries around the world, shows that technological capacities are needed to secure high-quality digital certification.
The agreement will be implemented to issue and provide CERTUS® secured digital certificates to participants of future hackathon projects in Europe and Asia-Pacific. Opportunities for future engagement, participation and updated knowledge will be offered through digital badges, which can be used for future training activities hackathon Alumni choose to benefit from.
