    I declare that I have informed the chairs of all the Working / Interest groups included in this joint meeting application.

    Meeting objectives
    The proposed session will bring together people interested in the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model and other FAIR assessment approaches, to discuss the future development and evolution of the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model and its relation to other FAIR initiatives. In specific, we are focused on both metadata (Metadata IG) needed to understand a dataset and the granularity (Data Granularity WG) in which datasets should be referenced as it applies to a FAIR assessment or a dataset.
    This joint session is intended to develop relationships with the Metadata IG and Data Granularity WG (pending endorsement) working on the specific concerns that will inform the next version of the FAIR Data Maturity Model.
