CSCCE Open Source Tools Trials, starting in August!

Hi all!

The Center for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement (CSCCE) is hosting an Open Source Tools Series, to understand how various open source platforms (like Github, and Jitsi) can be used to support communities. The calls will be happening throughout August and September.

I figured this event would be of interest to some of you, so I thought to share it here on the forum!



Dear GOSH Community,

I don’t have time to be the point person on this, but the winner of this grant will either be GOSH or an organization that supplants GOSH.

Pathways to Enable Open-Source Ecosystems (POSE)

This request for proposals is more about the organization that would be the proper venue for what we are doing (i.e. where we would present at). It would be appropriate for the Gathering of Open Source Hardware to submit a proposal here.
I would like to host a GOSH conference in Melbourne, FL in early January of 2025, and this might be the place to apply for that. However, I am not going to host such a conference without getting a grant.

Best regards,
Jim Brenner
