  "abstract": "<p>The concept of developing a national <strong>Open Knowledge Base</strong> for the Netherlands (NL-OKB) has been proposed in response to the strategic needs of the research community in the Netherlands. In parallel with the work of the <em><a href=\"https://www.vsnu.nl/files/documenten/Domeinen/Onderzoek/Open%20access/Engelstalige%20samenvatting%20opdracht%20werkgroep.pdf\">Dutch Taskforce on Responsible Management of Research Information and Data</a>&nbsp;</em>addressing these opportunities and the preparation of a <a href=\"https://www.dialogic.nl/en/projects/haalbaarheidsstudie-open-knowledge-base/\">feasibility study</a> by Dialogic, interested stakeholders were convened with the goal of identifying expert and user-community interests in and need for an NL-OKB.</p>\n\n<p>The goal in convening a workshop was:<br>\n1.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;To gather evidence on the feasibility of an NL-OKB<br>\n2.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;To test the community interest and appetite for developing an NL-OKB<br>\n3.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;To identify a practical pathway forward towards startup and implementation of an NL-OKB</p>\n\n<p>Over two days, 19-20 November 2020, 35 participants representing national and international organisations met in a virtual workshop. This included representatives of VSNU, NWO, NFU, SURF, DANS, CWTS and a range of Netherlands institutions alongside international stakeholders such as Crossref, ORCID, OpenAIRE, DataCite, SPARC North America, Jisc, UKRI and others.</p>\n\n<p>There was strong support for an NL-OKB amongst the assembled group. The group as a whole was strongly in favour of the development of an NL-OKB run on behalf of and controlled by the academic community. Of those present, virtually all indicated they had a direct stake and interest in supporting the development of an NL-OKB. International participants were also keen to see efforts in the Netherlands succeed as an exemplar to be drawn upon. The assembled group reached a series of consensus conclusions, that taken together provide the beginnings of a roadmap for further development.</p>\n\n<p><em>This report was prepared by the workshop conveners: Cameron Neylon (Curtin University), Magchiel Bijsterbosch (SURF), Alastair Dunning (TU Delft), Bianca Kramer (Utrecht University), Sarah de Rijcke (Leiden University), Clifford Tatum (SURF; Leiden University) and Ludo Waltman (Leiden University).&nbsp;The&nbsp;report may be re-used under a Creative Common Attribution v4 License.</em></p>",
