„Open“ engineering science at TU Darmstadt – the OpenIng project


A further method for the realisation and reinforcement of Open Access (OA) and Open Educational Resources (OER) at TU Darmstadt is the OpenIng project to intensify and make publications and teaching materials for the engineering sciences easier.

During several workshops the engineering scientists’ current usage of OA and OER and the need of specific supporting offers was determined. Both local survey and the results of a Germany-wide poll regarding the publication conduct for the engineering sciences form the basis for the development of new service ideas and adjustment of existing information and publication offerings. In 2019 these services will be tested together with engineering scientists and will then be integrated into the concept of service and information.

Project partner: TU Darmstadt (HDA and ULB), TU Braunschweig and University of Stuttgart
