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

    Meeting objectives
     In 2015 the four core RDA  metadata groups ( Metadata Standards Directory Working Group, Data In Context Interest Group, Research Data Provenance Interest Group ), coordinated by the Metadata Interest Group, worked together to create a set of principles for metadata that the groups believed RDA should adopt and promote. The third principle,
           Metadata is not just for description and discovery; it is also for contextualisation (relevance, quality, restrictions (rights, costs)) and for coupling users, software and computing resources to data (to provide a Virtual Research Environment)
    This meeting is targeted at ensuring the MIG and related groups’ work on metadata elements provides what is required for the purposes of curation.
