Our Events

The UN DSC, in working with its members and innovation networks, hosts or facilitates several events each year to help spark innovation and crowd-source ideas and applications for further testing design and delivery.

New technologies hold incredible promise for the advancement of human welfare. Using new technology, the UN’s management culture can become more efficient, agile and proactive and deliver better results.

Who We Are

The United Nations Digital Solutions Centre (UN DSC) is a pilot project to support digital transformation across the UN. Its goal is to spark innovation, leverage modern technologies and support inter-Agency collaboration, with a focus on improving internal management processes to better deliver on UN mandates.

Founded by the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP), in collaboration with the UN International Computing Centre (UNICC), the UN DSC brings a holistic view of digitization, implementing new methods and technologies used across private sector organizations.

UNICC, with nearly fifty years of experience and expertise, implements UN DSC solutions as low-cost shared services for the UN family, taking advantage of existing relationships with leading technology partners and full operational and project delivery capacity.
