About it

“Much as Wikipedia has sought to democratize access to knowledge
and the open source software movement has attempted to democratize computing, Open Source Ecology seeks to democratize human wellbeing
and the industrial tools that help to create it.” (ref)

The organization serves as a tool for the OSH community in regards of funding, PR, and infrastructure provision & development. You are a community or a project working group and need support/funding/contacts? → please contact us; happy to help 🙂

What we do:
– developing Open Source Hardware (OSH)
– education in the field of OSH (with Open Educational Resources of course 🙂 )
– community-based assessment of OSH according to DIN SPEC 3105-2
– support in legal issues (licensing, patent law, liability etc.)
– support in the funding acquisition for OSH projects
– provision and development of IT infrastructure for OSH development
– provision and development of physical infrastructure (OpenEcoLabs, Open Culture Office)
– hub for community networking
– active driver for political demands to support open source principles
