Open Educational Resources (OER) are implemented at Austrian universities in a similar way to other already institutionalized Open Science activities, often in the form of Open Lectures. There is now broad agreement that open educational resources have many advantages for (university) learning.
The research project Gate2Math: Open multilingual smart library for mathematical resources supporting efficient learning, a project from the Erasmus+-Partnerships for cooperation program, focuses on the use of ICT measures, in particular mathematical OER, for competitive and innovative education. As part of a university education, gaps in mathematical fundamentals must (increasingly) be closed and opportunities for independent development of content must be offered. An accessible, reliable and high-quality knowledge base in the form of (mathematical) OER is a good and necessary resource in our time.
