The ISO 20022 Hackathon, hosted by the BIS Innovation Hub and SWIFT, invites teams to build and showcase solutions that improve cross-border payments, using the ISO 20022 standard for payments messages and APIs.

Over the next three years large parts of the world’s payment infrastructures will switch to ISO 20022, meaning that it’s time to get ready. Whether you are a bank, a fintech, payment service provider or corporate, this event will give your team a head start in preparing for and showcasing  innovative solutions for the upcoming ISO 20022 transformation.


Join the Hackathon from 12-19 March to benefit from:


– An ISO 20022 & API masterclass with leads from cross-border payment network SWIFT. Tom Alaerts, a SWIFT ISO 20022 expert, will explain the benefits and requirements to adopt the standard in retail and wholesale payments and highlight the essential elements for use in payments. SWIFT’s Alvaro Acevdo, an API expert, will also cover how to use best-practice standardised APIs.

– A deep-dive with Magnus Lageson of Swish, the ISO 20022-based mobile payments app which is used by more than 75% of all Swedes. Magnus will explain how to build with ISO 20022 from a developer’s perspective, and highlight the benefits for consumers and end-users.

– A 7-day virtual Hackathon that will give teams the chance to apply ISO20022 and APIs to address opportunities in cross-border payments. Teams can adapt their existing product to make use of ISO 20022 or build and demonstrate new solutions leveraging ISO 20022 and APIs.



Three winning teams will showcase their solutions at the BIS Innovation Summit (a global 3-day virtual conference).

Teams should register by Monday 8 March (23:59 US Eastern Time) at
