Additionally participants will be engaged on how the open science & hardware movement can contribute to sustainable change in Africa.

@gaudi and @dusjagr Michel Pauli and I are planning to build the “Mur vibrant” (vibrant wall?) he saw during the workshop with you in Switzerland. We are planning also to have small devices like MiniPocket PCR during the event. I will be in Vienna from 02 -06 february and I will visit Gunter from Pavillon_35. Perhaps I can receive some device from Vienna and bring them back.


Hi @thomasmboa . Michel told me about it and I am happy to hear you want to present PocketPCR to your community. I will make sure you get a device in Vienna - maybe we can even meet somehow.
