This initiative aims to aid emergency relief and foster a participatory innovation ecosystem for Ukraine's socio-economic revival.

  • Free and open — Appropedia is and always will be free to access and with open licenses. Contact us for pricing regarding custom support!
  • Advanced tools — We've been helping document projects for more than 17 years. In the process we developed powerful yet simple to use tools and standards.
