SkillsWorld Live - Why is qualification reform so controversial?

More than three-quarter of the diplomas and certificates issued by the university in 2020 were issued as digital certificates with probative value.

As announced in May 2021, the University of Lille is the first to achieve a real digital transformation of its academic department on this scale by issuing its students a digital certificate of completion of their degree or certificate anchored in a low energy blockchain.

The student receives a permanent link to a tamper-proof and verifiable web document, translated into English, which they can present to an employer, an association or for further study, in France and abroad, allowing the authenticity of the diploma to be verified.

Carried out in collaboration with BCdiploma and the GIP Renater, this digital transformation project was implemented as part of the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP). The objective is to allow all national and European higher education institutions to issue these certificates by relying in particular on the experience acquired by the University of Lille as part of the European government project fr. EBSI. Since January 2022, before the implementation in all the university’s components, the Faculty of Legal, Political and Social

Sciences is the pilot for the launch of digital certificates on the spot , as the juries deliberate.
