Co-operative Technologists

This wiki site was set up at our founding event, 14th - 17th November 2016 at Wortley Hall, where 55 co-operators from 18 co-ops came together to form CoTech, a network of tech co-operatives mostly based in the UK.

Member Co-ops

All current members of CoTech are listed under the members section of the CoTech website.


Please add to the Collaboration page when a Cotech co-op works with another CoTech co-op.

Our Constitution is a basic description of how we work, what we stand for, and who can join us. It also has details on how we change the constitution.
