The Digital University Initiative NRW is funding the HydroOER project, in which RWTH Aachen University, Aachen University of Applied Sciences and the University of Bonn are jointly creating open educational resources for the field of water management.

In the course of the project, among other things, a complete German-language bachelor course on water management and an English-language master course on the topic of flood risk management will be created on the basis of the existing competencies at the three locations.

The Center for Teaching and Learning Services at RWTH Aachen University is responsible for the media didactic evaluation.
The created OER materials are finally made available via the NRW platform ORCA.
