Questions about GOSH 2023 Events Funding Program

Hi All

If you have questions or clarifications about the GOSH 2023 Events Funding Program (see thread below for full information), please ask them here in this thread or email admin@openhardware.science.

So happy this is going again! It was what made Dinacon 2022 possible! I swore to not run any large events this year (after the 2 last year), but you all have ways to tempting me :wink:

That looks really nice! :smiley:

(We are working on a citizen architecture / science project in the Hong Kong countryside, although I think precisely that region is not eligible.)

Hi @feklee

We have some restrictions on where we can send funds or hold events if that location has been sanctioned or flagged as high risk by the US government, because the funds are situated in the US.

In the case of Hong Kong, if you meet all of the other eligibility criteria and would like to submit an application then reach out via admin@openhardware.science and we will make further enquiries as to the potential restrictions.

Very insightful project. My team and I will be working on the Open Science in the area of neuroscience and science and technology studies in Africa.

where can we submit our application?

What Does * Science and Technology Studies means can you elaborate a bit about this catagory?

Hi @Fasil_Tariku we welcome events on advancing open science hardware scholarship across the field of Science and Technology Studies, here are a couple of resources describing the scope of STS:

The list of disciplines provided is illustrative, applications focused on other disciplines that are not explicitly listed are also welcome.

Hello @jcm80 et al.,

Some of us are talking about applying for an online event focused on open science space hardware :artificial_satellite:. This would gather my/our contacts at NASA, projects already creating open science hardware for space (e.g. OreSat which presented at a recent GOSH Community Call), and other GOSH community members.

Assuming we can get those people to attend, we would like for this gathering (no pun intended!) to (1) share our respective projects and network; (2) workshop and articulate why open source hardware is relevant and valuable for space science (such as for remote sensing for environmental monitoring); (3) and how it might be achieved. Outputs might include blog posts, article(s), a proposed roadmap, session recording(s), etc. We also believe this event would be good publicity for GOSH.

We will of course disclose any possible conflicts of interest, such as me being a GOSH Community Council member (who will not be reviewing any applications!). Looking at last year’s experience with Regional Events where Dinacon was successfully funded, we do not anticipate problems in this regard.

I’d just like to confirm if the above would fall within scope of the current call? If so, we will begin reaching out to possible participants to confirm their attendance.

Thanks!

Hi @hpy

It’s an event on advancing open science hardware in a specific discipline/field (space science), so it’s exactly in scope for the call :slightly_smiling_face:
