We participate in several initiatives that promote open source technologies, such as TECNOx, GOSH and OpenPlant. Please check some of our workshops on open source technologies in the news tab.

By Open I mean working practices that guarantee open access to methods, blueprints, documentation and resources as well as freedom to use, modify, sell and redistribute technology.
