This page is aimed at presenting the UNESCO, COL and ICDE Chairs who are dedicated to Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Education (OE). These organizations bestow chairs to individuals and organizations how are active and recognized in the field of OE/OER.

ICDE and COL coordinate, where possible, in collaboration with UNESCO which already operates a well known Chairs program.

The Chairholders aim to work as a group to promote OER research, policy and practice in a number of different projects. You can find out more about these activities by visiting each Chairholder page.

Currently, Chairholders are actively planning collective activities for the 2nd World OER Congress which will happen in September 2017 in Slovenia.
