Open Hardware Workshop

On the occasion of the international Open Access Week 2019, an Open Hardware Workshop organized by the University Library will take place in the Seminarzentrum of the Freie Universität Berlin on the 22th of October 2019.

Why open hardware?

Most projects involve some kind of data acquisition, automatisation, dealing with established machinery and interactions in the real world including motors, microphones, displays and more. Open hardware is fast and cheap to build. It is reproducible and extremely adaptive to the experimental use-cases.

Workshop Content

The workshop will introduce you to Open Science and Open Hardware, address the relevance of the topic for junior researchers and demonstrate how to find all necessary information to build Open Science Hardware.
During the Hands-on Sessions the hardware you want to develop will be discussed to help you build it.

An explanatory video featuring Benjamin Paffhausen and his project „Artificial Flower – a honey bee feeding device“ built with open source hardware and software can be watched here.
