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 an equal chance of joining to GOSHers all around the world.

How to Join

Each call is hosted via Zoom. The schedule below has more details on how to join each call.

Subscribe to the GOSH community calendar to be notified of future calls and other GOSH-related events and activities.

Recordings and Notes

Recordings are uploaded after the calls to the GOSH YouTube channel.

The notes from the 2021-2024 calls are stored here. You can find the notes from the 2019 community calls here.
