    How to place the FDMM in the larger ecosystem?

    How can the FDMM be used to implement FAIR?

    How can the FDMM and your FAIR assessment method enable culture change around data and software sharing?

    What do you think is missing from the FDMM for your implementation, what are obstacles/constraints in your implementation?

    Meeting objectives
    The proposed session will bring together people interested in the RDA FAIR Data Maturity Model (FDMM) and other FAIR assessment approaches, to discuss the FAIR DMM model implementation and its use in real life. In particular, we are focused on those participants who are in early stages and are interested in trying the FAIR DMM as a future tool for FAIR assessment and want to understand the basic concept of the FAIR DMM as preparation for their selection process.  This can be those considering incorporating the FDMM in existing services or using the FAIR DMM and its criteria itself.
    This session is intended to offer opportunity to existing implementers to share their lessons and for interested future users to ask their questions and raise their initial concerns from different domains.
    We are also interested to get feedback about the interoperability as a goal: Is the target to achieve inter-domain or within-domain interoperability.
