The OpenRheinRuhr is a community with the intention of “Free Software” that hosts an event takes annually in the Rheinische Industriemuseum in Oberhausen. Several COCUS colleagues are an integral part of the program and support the exhibitions, lectures and workshops.
Labdoo is also on site every year. Labdoo is a worldwide non-profit aid project that provides children and young people at home and abroad with access to IT and education with the help of IT donations.
