"the ongoing transition in how research is performed and how knowledge is shared."
The Open Science community Utrecht started an inclusive platform to learn and talk about open science. In just three months, over 100 colleagues have joined the Utrecht community, from all faculties and career stages. The Open Science community hosts open science cafes as a platform for informal discussions, organises open science workshops where members receive or provide practical advice and assistance.
A number of other universities have started similar local open science communities.
A global open science community has the potential to bring about large scale adoption of Open Science practices, making science more reliable and efficient.

NPOS and LCRDM
Call for action
In the slipstream of the 2016 Dutch EU chairmanship, the LCRDM, SURFacademy, the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and the Erasmus University organized the conference Designing & Shaping Open Science – one of the spearheads of the EU chairmanship was ‘open science’.
The LCRDM contributes to several ambitions of the NPOS: read more on the LCRDM wiki platform.
Shades of Open
Spring 2016 the internationally well-known jazz musician Michiel Borstlap composed his Open Boogie. Leitmotiv for open science.
The composition was made on the occasion of the conference Desiging & Shaping Open Science.
By way of 'open' the music sheets of Borstlap's "Open Boogie" are freely available.
