Wilma van Wezenbeek, director of the TU Delft Library, will succeed Robert van der Vooren as Open Access Project Leader at the VSNU with effect from 1 January 2018. In recent years Van Wezenbeek has spearheaded national and international efforts to promote open access and open science. At the beginning of 2017, she was commissioned by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science to lead the project team that wrote the National Open Science Plan. She has been involved in the VSNU project since its launch as a liaison for the VSNU and the consortium of libraries (UKB). Wilma has also been a member of a number of negotiating teams. Before she stepped into the library world, Van Wezenbeek gained a great deal of experience in the publishing industry. She will lead the project alongside her current position at the TU Delft.
