    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;The concept of developing a national &lt;strong&gt;Open Knowledge Base&lt;/strong&gt; 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 &lt;em&gt;&lt;a href=""&gt;Dutch Taskforce on Responsible Management of Research Information and Data&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/em&gt;addressing these opportunities and the preparation of a &lt;a href=""&gt;feasibility study&lt;/a&gt; by Dialogic, interested stakeholders were convened with the goal of identifying expert and user-community interests in and need for an NL-OKB.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The goal in convening a workshop was:&lt;br&gt;
1.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;To gather evidence on the feasibility of an NL-OKB&lt;br&gt;
2.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;To test the community interest and appetite for developing an NL-OKB&lt;br&gt;
3.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;To identify a practical pathway forward towards startup and implementation of an NL-OKB&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;
