    Legal information and brief history

    The Association of Technology, Education, Development, Research, Communication (TEDIC) is an association with restricted capacity and without profit purposes with legal status No.: 246, folio 3059 dated 03/04/2012. created on March 26, 2012 in the city of Asuncion in the Republic of Paraguay.

    TEDIC was created by a group of people with multiple trajectories and backgrounds in different disciplines, who wanted to create and promote the shared goods and resources as well as common property with other collectives and groups. In the past years, the organization has strategically refined its approch in order to encompass the development of civic technology and defense of human rights on the Internet in persuit of a free culture.

    During the first years of the organization, its members dedicated half of their time in activities around free culture, such as the defense of cultural rights and knowledge through the Creative Commons licenses and its community in Paraguay. Later on, small projects that were financed by micro grants for the development of civic technology were added. Both innovative elements strengthened the organization to focus solely and exclusively on the fulfillment of its strategic action lines since 2015.
