In March 2017 WikiRate and Kaleidoscope Futures hosted the fourth WikiRate Forum.
Within the 2-hour session we shared exciting case studies, inspiring projects and had lots of discussion about WikiRate and it’s future trajectory. We were joined by individuals from across the globe, representing academics, NGOs, standard organisations and corporate interests. The agenda is available here and recordings, presentations and commentary are below.
