Subject: [dmp-common] RDA DMP Common Standards WG – update and invitation to
a call
Dear group members!
I would like to share some updates with you on our activity and invite to
participate in a call in which we would like to sync with you on our
activities and plan next.
1. We will have a plenary meeting in Gaborone.
2. We had a workshop at the TPDL conference in Porto. During the
workshop we asked participants to review some of the processes that we
defined that show how data management activities can be automated when our
model is in place. We also collected feedback for our second consultation in
which we asked for standards/models/dictionaries/ontologies/etc. that can be
relevant for our model.

looks that we may have some pilot cases when the model is ready.

o Develop guidelines
o Model examples
In the call I would like to update you on the recent developments (the list
above), get feedback and suggestions. I would also like to hear from you
