The Observatory was founded in 1996 by UNESCO with the mission of fighting poverty through digital innovations. Since 2003, OCCAM has been associated with UNDGC, while in 2005 it received Special Consultative Status at ECOSOC

Since its foundation, OCCAM has been led by the core principle of becoming a pilot explorer actively involved in the digital revolution, while applying innovations through best practices for helping disadvantaged communities. OCCAM interprets and forecasts new trends, leading the various turning-point momenta to share the results achieved at the annual Infopoverty World Conference.
