Open access Act (Wet open overheid)

The open access Act (Woo) regulates the right of access to public information. The Woo ensures openness and transparency of the government, including universities. When the Board of the University make information publicly available under the Woo, the information concerned is available for anyone to view.

Starting in 2022, the UG will publish all Woo-decisions and the information made public pursuant to the requests made under the open access Act.
