Celebrating Innovators in Open Source Hardware

A global community of dedicated technologists is working to expand open source principles and practices from software to hardware. Open source hardware promises to do for physical objects — including scientific equipment — what open source software has done for code. While many private sector companies work in open hardware, adoption has been slower at U.S. colleges and universities, in part because open hardware projects are rarely recognized and rewarded. The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA), an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation-supported nonprofit, is working to change that.
