The Gathering for Open Science Hardware, an integral part of the global Open Science Hardware community, serving the community’s needs by convening meetings, facilitating activities, providing an online forum for the community and acting as publisher. In 2016, GOSH convened 60 members of the community at CERN in Geneva. This event identified commonalities in approach and the need for similar standards, best practices and enabling technologies; all of which led to the publication of the GOSH Manifesto. One of the team attended the GOSH event and recorded their time there. This developed into a very vibrant event booklet which shows the event in a fun and illustrated way.
