/* Institutional OER policies */
* Some universities in Germany work together in order to offer quality OER teaching material on the web. The University of Darmstadt provides a platform OLW [http://www.e-learning.tu-darmstadt.de/openlearnware/lehrmaterial_anderer_unis/index.de.jsp (OpenLearnWear)] as an open source software for other universities to publish their OER material as well. While doing this, these universities contribute to the idea of free education on the internet. Darmstadt also provides a website with the different URLs of other OER platforms from universities to make it easier to find the other initiatives.
* The [http://openaccess.mpg.de/Berlin-Declaration "Berlin Declarationon on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities"] of the Max Planck Gesellschaft declared that research results and cultural heritage shall be freely accessible and usable for scientists and the public. A lot of [http://openaccess.mpg.de/319790/Signatories other educational institutions and universities] joined this declaration.
