"Africa Open Science and Hardware (Africa OSH) Summit is a grassroots effort to bring together researchers, technologists, hacker hobbyists, educators, government officials, and start-up innovators around the world.
Our goal is to create a conversation and set of actions on OSH, among African actors, and between them and the international community, in order to adopt OSH principles and practices appropriate to our context. This alternative path to education, research, scholarly communication and manufacturing is crucial given the barriers imposed by closed knowledge systems and the traditional Intellectual Property (IP) regime.
Ultimately OSH aims to achieve an ecosystem for innovation that is locally adapted, culturally relevant, technologically feasible, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable
The Africa OSH Summit 2019 plans to host about 200 participants from across Africa and the rest of the world for 4 days in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania...."
