Outcome Harvesting for Wikipedia

What happens when the sum of all human knowledge is freely available in the world?

Wikimedia Foundation (Wikipedia) has been asking the question "What is the impact of grants?" for a long time. There have been a number of efforts to answer this question, focused primarily on short-term outputs. But these efforts miss the longer-term outcomes, the ripple effects of grantee work that are hard (and sometimes impossible) to measure in the short grant life-cycle. Calibrate Research Group's unique approach to outcome harvesting has helped the foundation capture the long-term impact of the world's greatest collective experience.
