Open Education and Open Science are global movements increasingly gaining interest and awareness since the COVID-19 outbreak. These two concepts, which can be traced back to the Middle Ages for Open Science and even earlier for Open Education, bear the potential to support our global society in particular during the current COVID-19 emergency and to build more open and global futures for science and education.

Open Education is more a broad movement than a precise concept and discipline as shown by the key dimensions of Open Education that have been analysed and integrated into the OpenEd Quality Framework. Several studies revealed the constant changes in the understanding and implementations of Open Education through the centuries. Specific emphasis of Open Education is on the requirement and need to provide innovative pedagogical models and learning opportunities.
