TechArk activities take different shapes and have different funding models, but all are focused on advancing the mission and model through small teams coordinating activities of a neutral platform.
URSA and NOMA are two examples of “microcosm” activities that are designed to tackle a specific question that is impeding technology development and foster cross-industry collaboration to address it.
Additionally, the infrastructure/skills and expertise of TechArk can be used to home a project that would otherwise be a floating collection of volunteers across companies.
Plans for the future include setting up and hosting future-looking technology colloquia, to broaden the horizons of Internet technology development in a cross-industry, collaborative fashion.
