Open Educational Resources (OER) are any type of educational materials in the public domain, or released with an open license that allow users to legally and freely use, copy, adapt, combine and share. OERs present a strategic opportunity to improve the quality of education as well as facilitate policy dialogue, knowledge sharing and capacity building.

The Congress brings together Ministers of Education/Human Resource Development, senior policy makers, expert practitioners, researchers and other relevant stakeholders to examine solutions to mainstreaming OER in support of Sustainable Development Goal 4 (“Quality Education”).
