BetterBeliefs compliments efforts to engage with community with an intuitive, social media-like interface that requires all ideas on the platform to be connected with evidence in support of or opposed to them. The interaction of stakeholders on evidence items (rating them out of five stars) as well as the ability to add confirming and disconfirming evidence really sets out platform apart. Allowing decision makers to confidently make decisions that are justified for action and transparent to community.

Inviting diverse, inclusive and transparent participation; encouraging respectful dissent and change of belief; and facilitating evidence-based decisions, BetterBeliefs helps governments and organisations involved in the governance of research and innovation responsibly manage steep power gradients and strongly asserted interests.

The most responsible way to govern innovation is by democracy
