We organize/participate in several initiatives, such as TECNOx and GOSH, that promote the adoption and development of Free/Libre and Open Source technologies in Latin America and worldwide. By Free/Libre and Open Source, we mean working practices and licenses that guarantee open access to methods, blueprints, documentation and resources as well as freedom to use, modify, sell* and redistribute technology.

Check these links if you want to learn more about open source:

Please check some of our workshops on open source technologies in the news tab.

(*)= open source technology can be commercialized (e.g. Opentrons, Sparkfun, openQCM,  Backyard Brains, openBCI, and more)
