Quella di Sito Patrimonio dell'Umanità è la denominazione ufficiale di queste aree secondo la Convenzione sul Patrimonio dell'Umanità adottata dalla Conferenza generale dell'UNESCO il 16 novembre 1972. Lo scopo di tale convenzione è di identificare, secondo precisi criteri, aree, siti e luoghi che rappresentano delle peculiarità di particolare importanza da un punto di vista culturale, artistico, archeologico, ambientale o paesaggistico. Con 50 siti inclusi nella lista del Patrimonio dell'Umanità, l'Italia si pone in testa a tutti i paesi per numero di riconoscimenti.

Global Open Access Portal

For countries that have been more successful in implementing Open Access, the portal highlights critical success factors and aspects of the enabling environment. For countries and regions that are still in the early stages of Open Access development, the portal identifies key players, potential barriers and opportunities. The Global Open Access Portal is designed to provide necessary information for policy-makers to: Learn about the global Open Access environment;View their country’s status; andUnderstand where and why Open Access has been most successful. Very Brief Introduction to Open Access. Directory of Open Access Journals. ABOUT - Open Access Week. Open Access Week, a global event now entering its sixth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

ABOUT - Open Access Week

“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted.

What is the 2012 World Open Educational Resources Congress and what are its aims?

The 2012 World Open Educational Resources (OER) Congress will bring together global governments, OER experts, NGOs, and educators to discuss and share the world’s best examples of OER policies and initiatives. By leveraging the resources and knowledge of the international OER community, the Congress will catalyze improvements in education across the globe.

By forging new partnerships between major research universities, identifying new tools that will benefit learners in rural communities, and implementing OERs into national education policy, we expect the annual Congress to have a significant impact far beyond Paris. The 2012 Congress will also celebrate the 10th anniversary of the UNESCO Forum on Open Courseware that created the term “open educational resources”, and to mark the progress we’ve made over the past decade.

Intergovernmental Organizations

IGOs, like all creators who want wide dissemination of their content, realize they can benefit greatly from the use of Creative Commons licenses--maximizing the impact of their resources and efforts. A number of IGOs believe that as publicly minded institutions, adopting an open licensing policy for at least some subset of their publications is the preferred mechanism for ensuring the broadest and most widespread use and reuse of the information they publish. This page explains some of the benefits for IGOs choosing to publish content under Creative Commons licenses, clarifies some unique legal considerations, provides case study of IGOs already using CC, aggregates relevant frequently asked questions, and addresses common licensing scenarios and options available to IGOs.

Why Intergovernmental Organizations Benefit from Using CC CC helps clarify rights to users in advance. An open door to UNESCO's knowledge.
