r0g_RESEARCH

Part of our work @ r0g_agency is to research and explore the ways in which open source and its realm of related technologies and methodologies can be applied to a broad spectrum of activities. We seek to fuse the power and resources behind open source and open data into means of active knowledge creation and social empowerment, particularly in societal transformation and post-conflict scenarios.
