In late 2022, the Virtual Campus Rhineland-Palatinate had invited the submission of project proposals for the opening of digital teaching materials to be funded under the OER funding program OpenEdu-Rhineland-Palatinate.
Mainz University of Applied Sciences successfully participated in this state-wide funding program with three out of four joint proposals and one individual proposal receiving funding. The sum of funding amounts to a total of 910,000 Euro, with 372,800 Euro going to Mainz University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with its partners.
