Dear all,

As some of you might know, the Slovenian Ministry of Education, Science 
and Sport which ran the OER Congress, was awarded with a European 
project that tries to align policy, research and technology in OER, see 
here https://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/211074_en.html and 

We don't regard this as a project really, but more as a long term 
commitment, as it will deliver the first building blocks for a global 
open infrastructure to easily connect all OER sites/siloses and provide 
a digestion pipeline based on artificial intelligence algorithms. It 
will result in providing technology services benefiting teachers, 
learners, researchers, policy makers and technologists.

The Ministry and the partners are looking for information (reports, data 
sets, etc.) that could give us a hint on the existing OER market and its 
structure, including the prevailing trends in consumption, technology, 
business models (for-profit and not-for-profit), market status, 
competitors, characteristics and trends as well as market size and 
revenue models (direct or indirect).

Does anyone know if there is anything out there on this topic?

We would welcome any suggestions.
