About Indico.UN

The Indico project

The Indico (Integrated Digital Conferencing) Project was born as a European project, a joint initiative of CERN, SISSA, University of Udine, TNO, and Univ. of Amsterdam. The main objective was to create a web-based, multi-platform conference storage and management system. This software would allow the storage of documents and metadata related to real events.

Indico at the UN

Indico is an effortless, customizable and user-friendly open source tool that allows for planned meetings to be executed in a flexible and integrated manner, thus making the process of managing events for organizers and event registration for participants more efficient. Indico has been in use at UNOG since 2016.  Due to its benefits for conference organizers across Geneva and security at the Palais des Nations, it has quickly expanded to over 50 UN entities worldwide. In customizing it to suit UN needs, the instance currently in use by the UN is known as Indico.UN.
