Community calls

GOSH community calls are virtual meetings aimed to learn about the activities and projects of GOSHers around the world, discuss interesting Open Science Hardware topics and make things easier for those interested in joining GOSH.

The calls usually consist of a 20 minute presentation of projects or topics followed by discussion, and some time for introductions/community announcements.

The time of the meetings changes from call to call in order to give equal chance of joining to GOSHers all around the world.

If you’d like to present at any of the community calls send an email to jarancio[at]unsam[dot]edu[dot]ar
