The Dutch National Program Open Science (NPOS) has set up an online open consultation. The aim of this consultation is to give all Dutch stakeholders the opportunity to provide input on the NPOS2030 Ambition Document, which forms the first chapters of the new NPOS2030 Program Description. It includes the NPOS Vision for 2030, the guiding principles underlying this vision, an NPOS program framework and key action lines. The NPOS2030 program facilitates all national stakeholders to work together to realize Open Science and to implement Open Science practices in line with international initiatives, moving from science 'as it is' to science 'as it will be'.
The foundations of the Dutch National Open Science Program (NPOS) were rooted in 2017, when the National Open Science Plan was signed by a large group of stakeholders from the Netherlands. The years that followed brought all kinds of developments in the transition to Open Science. Progress has been made in many areas: more stakeholders joined the NPOS, new aspects of Open Science emerged, and at the international level the European Open Science Could was launched and the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science was unanimously adopted by 193 Member States . All these developments, and the new insights they brought with them, have been incorporated in this NPOS2030 Ambition Document, which will form the first chapters of the new NPOS2030 Program Description.
The consultation will run until December 22. The feedback received in this consultation will help the NPOS Steering Board and the Programme Line Leads to start filling in actions for each of their Key Lines of Action for the coming years, thus creating a rolling agenda for the next decade. The results will be shared in February. After that, the NPOS Program Leaders will start filling in the rolling agenda.
Here you will find the online consultation and the ambition document.
