Presentation 1: Open science hardware practices and potentialities for Africa
Presented by Abdoul Kafid Toko
We want to discuss our ongoing systematic review on open science hardware practices and potentialities for Africa. Our project aims to conduct a systematic review of the literature that focuses on the analysis of open science hardware practices in Africa. The findings of this review will demonstrate the effectiveness of open science hardware initiatives in Africa.
