This article reports on a conference workshop conducted at CYTO 2018. During the workshop a new Open Science forum "CYTO Lab Hacks" has been launched within the International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC). Its goal is to serve as an open, transparent, sustainable and accessible forum for innovation-exchange in cytometry. Here we report the captured status quo, the perceived requirements of the members in relation to open innovation sharing and dissemination and publicize the format of "CYTO Lab Hacks".
