LOOKING FOR PARTNERS: Building/supporting Open Labs in Africa, Asia and Latin America


I’m Heloísa Oss Boll, a biotechnology student at UFRGS, Brazil. I work with open and citizen science/technologies at CTA (Centro de Tecnologia Acadêmica - this year we hosted TECNOx 4.0!).
Me and Prof. Tiago Antônio de Oliveira Mendes are studying the possibility of receiving funding from an international edict for the construction of open laboratories around the world.
We are looking for groups from Asia/Africa who could also be interested in receiving these fundings for the construction/mantaining of an Open Lab - with its main focus on Biology.
If you have interest in joining our group (or know someone who does), please reach me @ oss.boll@ufrgs.br. I can send you additional info.


Hi @helossboll, as discussed before:

I will also share this with the AfricaOSH community


Hello @helossboll , just seeing. Is this still open? I will like to know more. Cheers


Hello, dear open-biotech fellows.
I’m sorry for not giving more news about the project. Sadly, the current situation in Brazil, related to investments in science, destabilized our project task force and we had to abandon it.
We hope that this is temporary, and that soon we will be able to work again on our ideas of building open biolabs around the world.
We really appreciate the interest of everyone who contacted us. The start of the network is already formed!
Best regards for all,
Heloísa Oss Boll
