Eight countries in Latin America and four in the EU will soon be working together to promote and research open educational resources. The OportUnidad Project is co-funded with support by the European Commission under the EuropeAid ALFA III Programme . It involves 12 partner institutions in Italy, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay.
The aim of OportUnidad is to strengthen and sustain the EU-LA Common Higher Education Area, through a bottom-up approach, by the increasing use of open educational practices and resources (OEP & OER).
The lead partner is Universitá degli Studi “Guglielmo Marconi” in Rome. The project will be launched in early 2012. More news to come soon.
