    Meeting objectives
    A fundamental need for a scalable, cross-disciplinary data infrastructure for physical samples is the development and broad adoption of a common core metadata scheme for physical samples that will enable federated catalogues and cross-linking of digital sample representations with literature and data. The objectives of the P14 IG session are to:

    Review the outcomes of P13 and the May 2019 meeting of the Technical Steering Committee of the IGSN2040 project.

    Seek input from the audience on any other key initiatives and projects that develop and implement metadata schemes for physical samples 

    Identify programs which might become partners or adopters of PSACIRDE IG outcomes, etc (e.g medical sciences, material science).

    Establish new leadership for the PSACIRDE IG.
