The Research Cooperative was established in 2001 as an not-for-profit initiative. Our first network, The Research Cooperative NZ, operated successfully for seven years, using an open-source system customised by Dr Cees Lensink (Webcase, NZ).
Our new network is based on a generic social-networking system provided by Ning.com, and offers better security and better communication tools for our members and visitors.
See our introduction in English for further information on the aims and history of the network.
The top logo of our network shows two figures sitting back to back, in red. I made the following version on 30th April 2011 after seeing a great Paul Klee exhibition in Kyoto, where I live.
I will try to send a message to all members in the near future. Meanwhile, anyone, member or visitor, is welcome to visit a new website that is being developed for our network, The Research Cooperative.
The new site is being built with Ning 3.0, the social networking platform that will eventually replace Ning 2.0, on which our present network is based.
