    Meeting objectives
    Although the Core Trust Seal certification is being widely recommended, there are still a number of initiatives that have defined criteria and features to: (i) guide the selection of repositories, based on trustworthiness and FAIRness, or (ii) define good practices for the assist repositories to evaluate and improve their current operations. This is due to a number of stakeholders (including repositories alliances, funders, scholarly publishers, and research infrastructures) working within their own community, and tackling the challenge from their own view point.  The objective of this session, proposed by the RDA/Force11 FAIRsharing WG, is to bring together representatives of the TRUST, COAR, NIH, ELIXIR initiatives, alongside the group of scholarly publishers working on defining a common set of repository features. The session will provide an introduction and overview of these different initiatives and lay the foundation for convergence on a common set of features, clarify how these align to or complement CTS.
    The  session will consist of a brief overview of each initiative, followed by an interactive panel session with a series of questions, directed towards convergence.
