We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The workshop is part of the OpenEdu Policies Project which the Joint Research Centre (JRC) carries out on behalf of Directorate General Education and Culture (DG EAC).
It brings together representatives of Ministries of Education, Science and Culture of most EU Member States, European Commission policy makers as well as representatives of intergovernmental organisations such as OECD, UNESCO and the World Bank. The aim is to discuss policies on open education at both national and regional levels within the perspective of the 10 dimensions of open education, presented at the OpenEdu Framework. Both representatives of Member States which have policies on open education, or do not explicitly do so, will have the opportunity to share and discuss their strategies, future plans, challenges and motivations to open up education at school, higher education and lifelong learning levels.
OpenEdu Policies is a research project consisting of the analysis of different types of policies for open education from most European Member States. During the workshop, the OpenEdu Policies team will also share policy recommendations, which were designed from research and analysis, to be discussed and validated. The workshop is by-invitation only and can be followed via the hashtag #OpenEduPolicies on Twitter.
