On the 18th of February, Alex Tarkowski on behalf of Creative Commons organized a debate on Really Open Education. Domestic Policies for Open Educational Resources, hosted by Róża Gräfin von Thun und Hohenstein, MEP. The meeting brought together almost 40 experts and stakeholders from a range of educational projects, national schooling systems, and national and international non-governmental organizations across Europe. Robert Schuwer from POERUP and OUNL was there and spoke about Wikiwijs, also a POERUP case study.
There is an excellent summary of the event with links to slides at http://oerpolicy.eu/really-open-education-reflections-from-cc-policy-debate/

28 October 2013 - Consolidated reports on Gulf States and EU countries
The various country reports produced earlier for POERUP on countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council in the Middle East have been edited and made public on the POERUP wiki, linked to the relevant country pages. The reports are extremely thorough and also shed an up to date light on developments in education, e-learning, internet and copyright in these countries, complementing the initial work on them done in the Re.ViCa and VISCED projects. The project is very grateful to its consultants Manal AlMarwani and Charlie Watt for their work. For an index to the reports see OER in Gulf States.
There are now 15 EU countries (out of the 28 in total) which have country reports done by POERUP staff or contracted consultants. One, Ireland, was not in the original list, but has been added since it is the topic of a policy study. See EU countries.
There are now 30 countries on which POERUP has done specific Country reports.

- Two campus universities, but both with capacity in distance education (University of Leicester - the Applicant - and Vidéoscop, Université Nancy 2 - the Evaluator)
- Two specialist e-learning consultancies (Sero - the Coordinator - and SCIENTER)
- One Europe-wide e-learning association (EDEN)
