Open Education and Training (2021)

Where does Europe go from here?

Currently, the potential of open educational resources (OER) in Europe in higher education and business is not fully harnessed. The European Network for Catalysing Open Resources in Education (ENCORE+) responds to this by building the foundation of a European OER Ecosystem which is needed to fully realize the promise of open education.

This report therefore aims to map out the current situation or OER in Europe regarding the different stakeholders and their attitudes towards and experiences with OER, emerging issues in higher education and business, the need for open learning cultures, as well as the four main challenges to boosting the uptake of OER in Europe: technology, policy, quality, and innovation. Our report relies on a survey conducted amongst stakeholders from business and higher education, on interviews conducted with experts on OER, and on a review of relevant literature.
