This policy targets at several open approaches including Open Access, Open Science and Open Education.
Concerning Open Educational Resources it recommends the use of Creative Commons licenses as well as the infrastructure provided by the technical university:
"Open Educational Resources (OER) have been used and developed internationally since the turn of the millennium. They represent a central pillar in UNESCO's Global Agenda for Education 2030 (https://www.unesco.de/bildung/bildungsagenda-2030), as their free and unrestricted availability gives them the potential to contribute to greater equity in education.
Their licensing under Creative Commons (https://creativecommons.org/) ensures the legally compliant use and further processing of educational materials of all kinds. OER can be reproduced, combined with other materials, edited and republished. Open Educational Resources have the potential to create a new dynamic in education if their use and development are accompanied by didactic teaching and learning scenarios. TUHH has actively contributed to the development of OER within the framework of the Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU) project and would like to encourage and support all members of the university to use and develop OER and to develop associated didactic concepts in the sense of Open Education.
The members of the TUHH are expressly encouraged and supported to openly make available their scientific findings from research and teaching and to try out new forms of open cooperation for themselves."
