The event will be an opportunity to discuss the results of the ENCORE+ Network activities of the past 3 years and to jointly reflect on how open educational resources and practices can contribute to business innovation and employment.

Experts and participants will come together to discuss the benefits of OER in business innovation and employment, with the perspective the reskilling and upskilling needs. Open Education makes it possible to democratize access to knowledge, empower individuals in acquiring relevant skills and encourages entrepreneurial thinking. Technology like AI could revolutionize production of digital content and the entire definition of copyright. New possibilities of recognizing competences offered through microcredentials will also contribute to fostering innovation in the employment sector. 

The objective of this session is to explore and highlight key opportunities and challenges for OERs to help businesses innovate at scale and support employee development in a changing and innovative environment. This session will also inform the development of a project whitepaper on this topic.
