practitioners, researchers, educators, government officials, and start-up
innovators in science and technology primarily across the African continent
and the global South.

We hope you can spread the word by forwarding this email to your community

*About Africa OSH*

Africa OSH is a grassroots effort that provides people interested in open
science and hardware an alternative to traditional intellectual property
(IP) and closed systems as a means to achieve locally adaptable
technologies that will foster economic growth in Africa. We are also
facilitating the creation of the first roadmap for Open Science & Hardware
in Africa that will be refined in this year’s summit.

Last year, our event in Kumasi, Ghana catalyzed the interaction of ~100
participants from 22 countries. Topics discussed ranged from citizen
science, DIY Biology, open source technology, entrepreneurship,
biosecurity, bioart, design, social science, and open access and
publishing. Partnerships and new initiatives were born.

Over several days, we will have opportunities to learn more about projects
and initiatives across the continent, create space for exchange and
collaboration through workshops, panels and sessions initiated by attendees.

You can find out more about us and last year’s event at http://africaosh.com.

Please let us know if you have any questions and thank you for spreading
the word. We hope to see you or representative from your organization in
