Call for participation OHM cohort 1

The call for applications for the first cohort of the Open Hardware Makers program is now open!

If you would like to learn and implement best practices on Open Source Hardware for your current project, this is for you.

OHM is a mentorship program for open source hardware projects and their developers. In it, you will learn the best practices in open hardware that will prepare you to build a reusable, inclusive and sustainable project. All projects that participate in OHM are expected to publish their documentation, hardware and software under open licences.

The program runs over 16 weeks (from March 14th 2022 to July 1st 2022). Accepted participants will work through the curriculum supported by a dedicated mentor, while engaging with the wider OHM community (experts, fellow participants, other mentors and organisers). We expect mentees to dedicate ~5 hours per week to successfully go through the program and apply their learnings to their projects. More details about the program and the role of menteescan be found here.
