    Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group
    The National PID Strategies WG ran from December 2021 to June 2023 to explore how Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) form part of national policy and research infrastructure implementation frameworks.
    The WG found that the development of national PID strategies is a relatively new phenomenon and many countries are in the very early stages. All national PID strategies are currently in development and therefore subject to a high degree of change. The outputs from the WG included a Guide that compares and contrasts national PID strategies based on nine case studies collected. This includes a National PID Strategy Checklist to summarise and highlight key considerations.
    National PID strategies are on the rise as evidenced in the nine case studies collected by the WG and the growing momentum of discussions at RDA Plenaries and other international fora. International PID providers have begun to actively engage with national PID strategies and the RDA National PID Strategies WG provided a focal point for furthering this engagement. With interest not only continuing but increasing in this area and the potential for collecting further case studies, including those from the Global South, this work will continue under the remit of the National PID Strategies Interest Group. With national strategies in flux the IG will enable the maintenance of existing case studies and updates to the Guide.
    This plenary session will provide the opportunity to highlight the transition from the WG to the IG, promote the outputs of the WG and encourage further participation within the new IG.
