Hi Egon,

I don't see much activity.

A node can be in hibernation, but that doesn't mean that the work on open data also stops ;-)

In my former role as projectleader for more openness on finance and budgets, I established an ambitious plan: within five years all the financial data from departments and agencies in the Netherland, that can be opened (within the boundaries of the laws) will be opened in a period of five years time.

This work is now being carried out, results will be published in tranches the upcoming years.

Onderwerp: [OKFN-NL] hibernated or death?

Hi all,

how is OKFN-NL doing? The Twitter channel is not used a lot anymore, the nl.okfn.org website redirects to okfn.nl, and I don't see NL listed in the national nodes at https://okfn.org/network/ ?

I am asking, as the Dutch government is writing a national plan for Open Science (which it sees as any scholarly discipline, e.g.

Is the Dutch node/chapter just hibernated or is the state worse than that?
