ABSTRACT
Overview of papers on enhancement of European Higher Education as presented during the Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education Conference in Rome, October 2016

The Global OER Graduate Network (GO-GN) is a global network of doctoral students whose research projects include a focus on openness in education through, for example, OER, MOOC, open data, open licensing and open access publishing.
GO-GN started as an initiative from the UNESCO Chair in OER at the Dutch Open Universiteit, in collaboration with the UNESCO / COL Chair in OER at Athabasca University (Canada). It is currently funded through the OER programme of The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and administered by the Open Education Research Hub from the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University, UK.

In summary the goals of the GO-GN are to substantially expand the Open Education research base; achieve this expansion mainly through good quality PhD trajectories; find these PhD trajectories distributed among universities in a variety of societies in the different continents around the world; connect the research projects and researchers through a global learning network; and provide free and easy access to the generated knowledge through papers, conference presentations, dissertations, as well as reports and publications for a broader audience.

In this presentation we will introduce the GO-GN, showcase some of the research being conducted by our members, and discuss the strategies that are helping us to build and support a community of open practitioners.
