Pre-GOSH 2017 meetings and roadmap

Just arrived at CERN Geneva for a Pre-GOSH session with Shannon Dosemagen, Jenny Molloy, Anna Lowe, Luis Felipe and Greg Austic and Francois Grey. Tom Igoe and more local people will join us tomorrow.

The primary goal of this roadmap is to have an impact (boom) on major science organizations – both funders and labs – by outlining clearly the many benefits of OSH for conventional science institutions, while detailing the remaining challenges facing its wider uptake.

Here is our working document:
