Germany has been a laggard to the OER world in many ways, but is picking up speed through policies and practices focussed on bridging the gap between bottom-up (grassroot) initiatives and top-down policies and regulations. This submission will present the current state of the art in Germany, where a lot of attention is being placed on mainstreaming good practice and train-the-trainer initiatives. One of the developments, which are expected to have a huge impact on the future of OER in Germany, is the implementation of a national strategy for digital education, which has been partly developed, but is currently awaiting the constitution of the new German government for final decisions and launching. The authors present their review of developments until now and their assessment of the next steps.
