The foundations of the Netherlands National Programme Open Science (NPOS) are rooted in 2017, when the National Plan Open Science was signed by a large group of stakeholders from the Netherlands. The years to follow brought us all kind of developments in the transition to Open Science. Progress has been made in many aspects: more stakeholders joined the NPOS, new aspects of Open Science emerged, and on the international level the European Open Science Could was launched and the UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science has been unanimously adopted by 193 Member States.
Al these developments, and the new insights they brought, are taken into account in this NPOS2030 Ambition document, which will form the first chapters of the new NPOS2030 Programme Description. It includes the NPOS Vision for 2030, Guiding Principles that underlie this Vision, a NPOS Programme Framework and its Key Action Lines. The NPOS2030 Programme will facilitate all national stakeholders to collaborate in realising Open Science, and to implement the Open Science practices in alignment with international initiatives, moving from science ‘as is’ to science ‘as will be’.
In the process of writing this NPOS2030 Ambition Document many stakeholders were already asked to reflect. The NPOS Steering Board and the NPOS Advisory Board share the opinion, that general support within the community is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we seek further feedback on the NPOS2030 Ambitions, before the actions that are going to be carried out through the NPOS Programme are defined.

Aim of this Consultation and next steps
This Open Consultation aims to give all stakeholders from the Netherlands the opportunity to reflect on the NPOS2030 Ambition Document. 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 the Key Lines of Action for the coming years, thus creating a rolling agenda for the next decade. These actions will be discussed with the relevant stakeholders that will contribute by taking on this action to ensure that the ambitions are met.
