Jenny MolloyGOSH! News, Opportunities Leave a Comment

The Global Open Science Hardware (OScH) Roadmap laid out a path to make open science hardware ubiquitous by 2025. In order to learn about, support and grow OScH and the OScH community, engaging with researchers and policy makers is essential.

The 2022 GOSH Open Science Hardware Research and Policy Workshop Program supports meetings, writing workshops or other collaborations to scope research topics, conduct literature reviews and develop further policy advice aimed at defined audiences. The outcomes should advance recommendations made in a) the 2021 Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH) Policy Briefs aimed at funders, academic technology transfer offices and international policy makers; or b) the Global Open Science Hardware Roadmap.

Examples of topics (for illustrative purposes only) might include: policy recommendations on open science hardware for research funders in Africa, best practice guidelines for learned societies publishing journals featuring open hardware papers, a research agenda for studying the impact of open science hardware within a specific discipline.

The deadline for applications is midnight US Eastern Time on 8 May 2022
