  • Define legal interoperability of research data and articulate why it is important for data interoperability and reuse.
  • Document and analyze up to four case studies in the areas of geoscience, biodiversity research, social sciences, and humanities of legal interoperability solutions in interdisciplinary and international contexts. 
  • Develop and publish core principles and guidelines of best practices through which legal interoperability can be achieved, and link to related information resources online.
  • Work with key stakeholder groups to get the core principles and guidelines of best practices adopted.
  • Generally promote better understanding and greater use by the stakeholder groups in the research community of the agreed approaches to legal interoperability of research data, focused on highlighting and enabling better integration and reuse of such data.

Some thoughts for our call today

I just added Carrie's and Melissa's name to the announcement of our first
Carrie, Melissa, I would appreciate it very much, if you would provide a
Title and an abstract for your talks.
Thanks for your help!
Our second session is still announced as a closed session.
Do we want to change this to make it an open session?

AW: [rda-legalinterop-ig] RDA 10th Plenary - Application for 2 Breakout sessions

Dear All,
Both date for a call are fine with me.
Concerning the question whether we do need the second session in Montreal.
The Idea of course was to a time slot to talk in “private”.
The need of this of course depends very much on who will actually be in Montreal and were we will be in respect to possibly developing some sort “project”.
I hesitate to cancel the slot now and suggest to at least wait until after der July 28th call.
