Dear Jeroen, Bianca,

thank you for taking this initiative.

I would be very interested in a meeting to coordinate open science efforts.
I know that in Germany, initiatives based at the various universities are
loosely coordinated through a network (https://osf.io/tbkzh/); something
similar would be very useful in NL.

Unfortunately, I fear that this week may be too short of a notice, though I
will see whether I can make it to Den Haag on Thursday.

Kind regards,

P.S. I've added Florian Wanders to the addressees; we've collaborated on a
number of efforts.
