Subject: [OER-advocacy] policy debate and OER, copyright and education in
the European Parliament on Nov 17
I am writing to inform you about a breakfast policy debate on copyright and
education, which I am organising (on behalf of Centrum Cyfrowe and
Communia, the European Association on the Digital Public Domain) with
Michał Boni (a Polish member of the EuroParliament from the EPP Group) on
the 17 November, in the European Parliament in Brussels
If you are in Brussels next week, please join us. I will also be grateful
if you could forward this message to any contacts that you have in
Brussels, who might be interested in this event.
Freedom to use educational resources in teaching is a fundamental issue in
education. It can be ensured either by copyright rules or through sharing
of Open Educational Resources (OER). The EC Communication on the
modernisation of copyright rules has defined educational exceptions as an
issue that requires action in the European reform planned for 2016. Also
this month, OECD is publishing a new report on “Open Educational Resources.
A Catalyst for Innovation”.
The goal of our meeting is to highlight and discuss these two approaches.
They are usually considered separately - I believe that in Europe, taking
into account both the “Opening up Education” initiative and plans to reform
copyright, it is important to formulate a strategy and recommendations for
user rights in education that encompasses these two issues.
The debate will take place on the 17 November at 8.00-9.30 in one of the
MEP Private Salons. We would be honoured to have you as a participant. I
hope that issues related to education, including open education and the
effects copyright has on educators will be of interest to you. You can RSVP
