11 December 2013 - France report available now in French

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.
