    Hello. We are writing to invite you to an upcoming webinar titled titled  “Persistent Identification of Instruments”,  presented by the RDA Persistent Identification of Instruments Working Group at 16:00 UTC on 19 May.
    The webinar will introduce the Outputs of the groups and include the following speakers:

    Markus Stocker – TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, Germany
    Rolf Krahl – Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie, Germany
    Louise Darroch – British Oceanographic Data Centre, National Oceanography Centre, United Kingdom
    Tibor Kálmán – GWDG (Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung mbH Göttingen), Germany

    The metadata schema for persistent identification of instruments will be addressed, as well as the proposed solutions for publishing PIDs for instruments at established PID providers. Participants will learn of numerous infrastructures that have adopted the PIDINST Schema as well as B2INST as an EUDAT prototype service for low-barrier registration and persistent identification of instruments.
