ABSTRACT
This catalogue contains 50 mini cases that highlight the practices of universities and educational institutions around open
education in Europe.
It showcases the different strategies followed by institutions that are embracing the open education movement and
opening up their content, research, recognition mechanisms and teaching practices. The catalogue provides a 'taster' of
what is being done and can be done in open education in the EU, prompting the reader to look further into the initiatives
that raise their interest.
