The Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH) is a diverse, global community working to enhance the sharing of open, scientific technologies.

We first came together in March 2016 at CERN for the first Gathering, which was all about connecting people and sharing stories, creating coherent ideas about what open science hardware is, and dreaming about what it might be. One of the main outcomes was the GOSH Manifesto, a clear statement of our shared values and intention.

The goal of GOSH 2017 is to bring the spirit of our Manifesto to life. This includes concrete outcomes for individual participants, like sharing experiences as users and developers of open science hardware, identifying best practices, collaborating to create opportunities and address failures, and building lasting friendships.

We will also focus on pursuing our shared goals and vision. In 2017 we believe that goal is to…

Build a roadmap to bring together the people, skills and tools needed to make open science hardware ubiquitous by 2025.
