Terminó el segundo taller de open hardware en Santiago de Chile, en el que ensamblamos microscopios FlyPi y “ponchitos” (tal como llama Ariel Lutenberg a los shields) para reacciones isotermales. Mil gracias a nuestros instructores André Chagas y Ben Paffhausen y a nuestros patrocinadores Instituto Milenio MIISSB, FONDAP-CRG y VRI-PUC

Terminó el taller de open hardware de Mendoza, en el que ensamblamos microscopios FlyPi y colorímetros bajo la guía de Nano Castro, Pablo Cremades, André Chagas y Ben Paffhuasen (Gracias!).

The ability to use, study, replicate, and improve scientific instrumentation is a central part of experimental science, and plays a crucial role in public life, research, and action. However, these activities are currently restricted by proprietary instrumentation, which is difficult and expensive to obtain and maintain, since they cannot be fully inspected, evaluated, or customized. This situation is fundamentally detrimental to the production of knowledge and its potential for creating equitable and sustainable solutions. The Open Science Hardware (OScH) community therefore seeks to bring together developers and users of scientific tools and research infrastructures to support the pursuit and growth of knowledge through global access to hardware for science.
This document describes what is required for Open Science Hardware to become ubiquitous by 2025, laying out challenges and opportunities and recommending concrete actions. These actions include:
- Creating institutional and funding support structures
- Preparing guidelines for hardware designers, funders, users and newcomers on key aspects of OScH development, such as quality control and standards compliance, licensing, documentation standards, and social and ethical aspects of scientific work
Involving the members of the OScH community in the task of elaborating an assessment framework for OScH projects
- Using the results of collaborative research to build a common pool of open educational resources
- Creating mentorship programs and support networks to increase diversity in the OScH community
