Workshop for supporting open source hardware in academia - 12 & 13 Oct. in Berlin

Hello again,

I’m forwarding the invitation below for a workshop on supporting open source hardware in academia by the Open.Make project, which is run by a team that includes GOSH community members like @moritz.maxeiner, @Juliencolomb, or @rmies. It is in-person in Berlin, Germany on 12 and 13 October 2023, but looks like travel support might be available.

Announcement follows:

We are writing to share that the Open.Make team with the support of Grenoble INP are organising a scientific workshop on 12 & 13 October in Berlin: “Supporting Open Source Hardware in Academia.

The event will provide a networking and knowledge exchange space for researchers and practitioners of open source hardware in research. The workshop is aimed at researchers, non-profits, companies and advocates in Germany and beyond, working towards broader adoption of open source hardware in science.

The agenda of the event will be partially co-created with participants, and it will also feature project presentations, panel sessions as well as poster sessions. The outcomes of the event will be summarised and published as proceedings (to be created in the months after) and as a series of blog posts on the Open.Make project blog.

Registration is now open until 30 September (EOD CEST). For organisational reasons, please register soonest. Note that the size of the venue (to be shared soon) may limit the number of participants. The organising team can provide reimbursement for travel and accommodation fees of selected participants who request it at the moment of registration.
