During June and July 2021 the Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH) community organised a series of three participatory, salon-style meetings to explore open hardware with funding institutions. The purpose of these meetings was to connect open hardware (OH) funders and broader funders of open research and to develop guidance on OH and Open Science Hardware (OScH). The series convened OH and OScH practitioners, as well as funders of OH, OScH and open science.
