Open Hardware Makers Cohort 2 call for applications!

The call for applications for the second cohort of the Open Hardware Makers program is now open!

Sponsored by Code for Science & Society, this cohort is fully dedicated to Open Hardware for science.

If you would like to learn and implement best practices on Open Source Hardware for your current project, this is for you.

OHM is a mentorship program for open source hardware projects and their developers. In it, you will learn the best practices in open hardware that will prepare you to build a reusable, inclusive and sustainable project.

All projects that participate in OHM are expected to publish their documentation, hardware and software under open licences.

The program runs over 16 weeks (October 3rd 2022 and ends on February 19th 2023 with a small holiday break ).

Accepted participants will work through the curriculum supported by a dedicated mentor, while engaging with the wider OHM community (experts, fellow participants, other mentors and organisers).

We expect mentees to dedicate ~5 hours per week to successfully go through the program and apply their learnings to their projects. More details about the program and the role of mentees can be found here.

I can definitely recommend joining as a mentor or a maker, the program was useful to the person I mentored in round 1, and the variety of program (MOOC, mentoring, peer to peer learning) was great.
