BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE
A biotech makerspace located in a rural community. Their approach of open science is three-dimensional: a) openness to publication and data, b) openness to society, and c) openness to excluded knowledge and epistemology, expressed in their biotech lab, their citizen science work around topics such as food security, Environment and Climate Change, or Open Science Hardware, as well as their Open Education scheme.
It is a space open to all offering access to free books, eco-artistic training and other paid services (internet, printing, etc.)
The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
