I'm replying to Enric who mailed the open-science group of the OKF. I have
copied in the Quixote mailing list

Thisis to introduce you to the Quixote project which is an Open Source Open
Science/data project in computational chemistry which arose out of a meeting
in Zaragosa two moths ago and which has resulted in a dynamic project
involving a multinational community but very defintely with Spanish origin
and flavour. It takes its theme from our aim to change the world by
attempting the impossible.

I suggest you contact Pablo (Madrid, copied) and see what common ground you
have and what we can do together. I think it's a great story which should
help to inspire others.

We tick all your boxes -
open science movement,  YES
engaging scientists in cooperative projects from the bottom up, YES
 promoting the creation of hackspaces YES
and biolabs ; SOME overlap
and this sort of grassroots initiatives. YES

We are also startting to develop tools for Open Courseware and experiments
(these are computational) which preserve their outputs for future students
to build upon.
