Open Technology Workshop in Cambridge UK on 27 Oct - all welcome (to attend and exhibit)

Dear All

You are warmly invited to Cambridge on 27 October to join an Open Technology Workshop and (optionally!) exhibit open hardware for science at the Biomaker Fayre. Unfortunately we have no funding for travel grants but we may be able to find you a local host so get in touch if that would be helpful.

The event is free and the link to sign up and register your projects is below.



(FREE) REGISTRATION NOW OPEN- to reserve your seat and lunch!

This event aims to showcase and celebrate open source technologies in research and education with a morning of talks followed by a Biomaker Fayre and demo stations in the afternoon.

The fayre will highlight projects by 14 teams participating in this year’s Biomaker Challenge - a four month programme challenging interdisciplinary teams to build low-cost, DIY instrumentation for biology. For more information, visit
