An OER initiative is an initiative to develop OER. This can be funded at various levels:

  1. truly internationally - eg UNESCO
  2. multinationally - eg EU or COL
  3. nationally - eg from UK
  4. regionally - from a top-level regional structure (province, state, etc) within the nation
  5. municipally - eg from a city or county responsible for education locally
  6. institutionally - from the centre of an institution with specific funding
  7. departmentally - from a Department/Faculty/School/College within an institution.

The focus in POERUP is to collect at least 100 "significant" OER initiatives, focussing on those which are largest-scale, but aiming also to balance across countries.

For a list of the ones we are collecting see Category:Significant OER Initiatives
